TQ6208 : Horse Eye

3 km from Hankham, East Sussex, Great Britain

Horse Eye
Horse Eye
Eye derives from the Anglo-Saxon eg meaning Island or eyot. The farm is built on a natural rise within the marshes. In the foreground is the track on the right and Rickney Sewer on the left. The foliage covering the water is floating pennywort a foreign invader which is a huge problem on the waterways of the marshes at the moment. Freely available from garden centres the plant covers slow moving waterways with a carpet of foliage that deoxygenises the water and literally chokes all life to death within it. It is not banned but environment agencies are pushing for the selling of it to be made illegal.
