SU8501 : Crosbie Bridge
taken 9 years ago, near to Donnington, West Sussex, England
What is known today as the Chichester Canal is in fact part of the former Portsmouth & Arundel Canal. This was opened in 1823.
In the late 1970s the Portsmouth & Arundel Canal Society was formed with the aim of restoring the canal. By the late 1990s they had reached the junction at Hunston and were working westwards along the main line towards Salterns.
However as work progressed further, the silting became worse, and by the time restoration reached the culverted Crosbie Bridge at Donnington where the road bridge currently forms a barrier to further progress.
The B2201 starts at a mini roundabout on the A286 near Chichester.
It goes south through Donnington to terminate at Siddlesham Common again at a mini roundabout on the A286, a length of 2.5 miles
