River Adur at Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex
River Adur at Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex
The river used to be navigable for large vessels up to the town of Steyning about four miles inland. Over the centuries the river silted up and the port moved to the deeper waters here close to the river mouth. With the demise of industrial riverside activity requiring wharfs for larger vessels, the drawbridge visible in the distance is no longer used.
