Church Norton

Since my sister died, I have been looking through older photos, just in case I find something that now seems interesting. And I do find such things, although they probably have nothing whatever to do with my sister. This is the Chapel of St Wilfrid, Church Norton. It’s a photo I took in 2001.

This was once the parish church for Selsey in Sussex. But in the 1860s, most of it was taken away and rebuilt much nearer the village centre, leaving just the old chancel as a chapel of ease. This remnant of old church is right on the edge of Pagham Harbour. This is an area of mud flats and salt marshes that keeps Bognor separate from Selsey Bill.

It’s an area rich in industrial and natural history with a long disused tramway, tide mills and plenty of bird life.

We visited this area on our way home after a family day at the good old Bluebell Railway.

    Know Pagham well spent a very enjoyable rainy day fishing for rabs in the harbour many years ago
