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
