SU8504 : River Lavant

taken 10 years ago, near to Chichester, West Sussex, Great Britain

River Lavant
River Lavant
Following the footpath that links Southgate to Avenue des Chartres south of the walls. The river has had its course altered so much that its original course is now unknown. The Romans certainly diverted it south of the city when the walls were built and various meanders have been straightened over the years. The river itself is heavily culverted between Southgate and St Pancras and the lack of a flood plain for water to seep into caused big floods around the city centre in 2000. The Lavant is also very much a winter river often reduced to a trickle during the summer.
