Bremere Rife
Bremere Rife
The watercourse seen here is Bremere Rife. Rife is the Sussex name for a drainage ditch which connects to the sea, in this case at Pagham Harbour. Two other rifes feed into the harbour, draining some 12,000 acres (18.75 sq.miles / c.50 kmē) of the fertile flatlands of the South Downs.
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.
