We recently popped down to the South Coast for what turned out to be a soggy bank holiday weekend. As West Wittering beach was taken off the agenda, we decided to pop along to Bosham village to have a look round.
The afternoon we arrived, it was rather grey and there was a spring high tide which was pushing the village water defences, but made for some great photographs from this very quaint quintessentially English village. Bosham Quaq meadow was given to the National Trust in 1934 and the legend is this is where King Canute attempted to hold back the sea. In 1064, King Harold sailed to Normandy from Bosham (as featured on the Bayeux tapestry).
It was great to watch all the families out sailing in dinghies, paddle boards and generally enjoying the waters which are some of the finest sailing waters in the UK, part of Chichester Harbour. Chichester Harbour is a 74km² Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with over 55,000 birds, 10000 boats and 8500 residents.
Below are some photos of the quay / harbour at high tide:
