Fishing Town

ID: 5015
Area: West Sussex
Postcode: PO20
Description: The historic fishing town of Selsey lies eight miles south of Chichester on the Southernmost tip of the Manhood Peninsula. Famed for its Selsey Crab which is lauded across the globe as one of the very best, the town has a proud fishing heritage, and there is still a strong cultural connection to the sea, with a fishing fleet moored offshore, still bringing in the catch. Selsey’s miles of natural beaches play host to a huge variety of wildlife both on and off the shore, and the RSPB reserves of Pagham Harbour and RSPB Medmerry are home to countless species of birds and wildfowl. In warmer months, visitors may even glimpse the seals from which Selsey’s name originates. With more sunlight hours than anywhere in the UK, and bathing water rated as excellent, Selsey is a great spot for a day in the sunshine. Explore the rugged landscape on foot or on bicycle. Enjoy a fabulous Selsey sunset and admire the impressive dark skies made famous by the late Sir Patrick Moore who lived in the town. Other notable Selsey residents and events can be sought out on one of the town’s Blue Plaque Heritage walks. With everything it has to offer and it's charming beauty, Selsey is a great location for filmmaking! Main photograph: Jon Nicholson.
