Widewater Lagoon, July 2020
Widewater is a landlocked brackish lagoon approximately 1200 metres long and 50 metres at its widest point when the lagoon is in flood. It was created by Man from the original Adur estuary after been landlocked by longshore drift and violent storms. The waters are replenished by the sea, which filters up through the basin of the lagoon on very high tides, and also by rain water. LinkExternal link

The Lagoon is located between Shoreham and Lancing in West Sussex, a few metres from the beach.
