Houseboats on the Chichester Ship Canal
Houseboats on the Chichester Ship Canal
The Chichester Canal is in two sections, the first running from the Chichester Channel of Chichester Harbour to Hunston is called the Chichester Ship Canal, while from Hunston northwards to Chichester City the "Ship" is omitted.
It is no longer open to through traffic though much of it remains in water. There are I believe several obstacles such as low bridges preventing its reopening. However this section of the canal, south of Chichester Marina is home to a number of houseboats such as the two seen here.
