River Rother at Hardham & Site of Hardham Lock
River Rother at Hardham & Site of Hardham Lock
This is the River Rother looking downstream just prior to its confluence with the River Arun. The Rother was once commercially navigable as far as Midhurst and in the foreground was the site of the long lost first lock up the river from the confluence. The Arun Canal Company were the operators of the navigation, and, in addition, a few hundred metres upstream of here, they built a cut from the Rother, through Hardham Tunnel, that bypassed the big loop of the Arun south of Pulborough and rejoined it south of Coldwaltham. This reach of old canal was not part of the Wey and Arun Canal, which had its southern terminus, where it joined the Arun, at Pallingham Quay, to the north of Pulborough.
