Chichester Canal
Chichester Canal
Looking NNW from Poyntz Bridge, Hunston. Chichester Cathedral (SU8604) can be seen on the horizon.
The canal, with a total length of 4 miles, was opened in 1822 and could accommodate boats up to 150 tons. Commercial use of the canal came to an end in 1906. It has now been restored and is an important habitat for wildlife. The former towpath on the west bank of the canal is a footpath from Chichester city to Chichester Marina.
