Chichester Cathedral

This is the view looking north from the bridge which takes the Chichester Canal tow path to the other side. At this point, at the village of Hunston, the canal takes a right angle turn. This is because the stretch from here into the city was originally an arm off the Portsmouth and Arundel canal, which formed part of the inland route from Portsmouth to London. Only the Chichester Ship Canal is left of the P&A. It was built wide enough to take 100 ton coastal ships, and the only part of the canal that achieved any success.
