River Adur Estuary Walk – Dr Geoffrey Mead
This walk will look at the influence of the river on the town; starting at Ropetackle we head north to the Old Shoreham Bridge. Crossing the footbridge we can see how the river has created the wide Adur valley over time. Back south along the new embankment and past the airfield, we then follow the riverbank beside the houseboat colony. Taking a short detour onto the shingle beach we can note how the movement of the pebbles has influenced Shoreham’s fortunes, before returning to town across the Ferry Bridge. Meet outside Ropetackle Arts Centre from 9.45am
