Pagham Harbour

Pagham Harbour is six miles to the south of Chichester and two miles north-east of Selsey. The Reserve was created in 1964 and is considered an important site for wintering wildfowl and waders.

Directions - from Chichester’s A27 bypass take the B2145 to Selsey.  Continue on the B2145 and about ¾ of a mile south of Sidlesham village, on the left, is the reserve entrance and car park.  There are a number of trails around the reserve which are detailed in a leaflet available from the Visitor Centre.

Near to the reserve entrance is a hide overlooking ‘Ferry Pool’.  The harbour is ideal for passage waders.  In the Autumn following the trail along the western edge of the harbour there’s quite a good chance of seeing a rarity.
