Creek and stakes; Pagham Harbour
At the north-eastern corner of Pagham Harbour this creek, controlled by sluice gates (see SZ8797 : Sluice Gates, Pagham Harbour) has some old wooden stakes along its edge - for what original purpose I don't know - perhaps the remains of an old jetty or landing stage; old maps show that there used to be oyster beds near here.
Pagham Harbour :: SZ8796
Pagham Harbour is a natural harbour in West Sussex. It is south of the city of Chichester and near the towns of Pagham and Selsey.
Whether it is a bay or estuary is a debateable point.
It is a biological Site of Special Scientific Interest, a Local Nature Reserve, a Special Protection Area, and a Ramsar site. Its shingle spit is further designated a Geological Conservation Review site. In spring or autumn rare migratory birds can often be seen. Pagham Harbour Local Nature Reserve covers 1,450 acres of salt marsh, mudflats, farmland, copses, lagoons, reed beds and shingle beaches.
