Kent and Sussex Shoreline Walk

Walk 25 – Portslade-by-Sea to Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex

It's a strange piece of shoreline from Portslade-by-Sea to Shoreham-by-Sea via Southwick, Sussex. On the OS map it resembles tiny claws belonging to a huge crab.

Predominantly shingle, as you pass the power station sand appears culminating in a lovely golden arc by the East Breakwater. This jutting length of concrete makes for great views.

Crossing Shoreham Harbour at the wharf, I trudged the unappealing walk to the footbridge which crosses to Shoreham-by-Sea.

Unfortunately the footbridge was in a state of repair, so I yomped back to retrace my steps through the interesting and colourful working harbour of Shoreham.

On this walk…

  • Houses owned by 'personalities' (whatever they are)
  • Power station
  • Strangely shaped sea defences
  • Working harbour
  • RNLI station – great place to stop
  • Shoreham footbridge – which hopefully is open now
  • OS Explorer map OL11 Brighton & Hove
