Have you ever visited Lancing's Widewater Lagoon?

Have you ever visited Lancing's Widewater Lagoon?

You can see the lagoon just beyond the footpath – this beautiful, coastal nature reserve is one of Lancing's hidden treasures, situated a short stroll along Lancing seafront, between Beach Green and Shoreham Beach.

As seasons change throughout the year, you will discover a rich diversity of birds that rest, migrate and reside here. Watch the Little Egret wading through the shallow waters with its elegant, crested plumage, listen to the haunting cry of the Oyster Catcher or simply sit and watch the Swans as they glide serenely by.

All around the banks of this saline lagoon, you can enjoy the colourful plants and flowers that thrive in shingle and coastal grassland. Rabbits run free from the banked bracken and bats fly silently when the sun has set.

Shoreham Beach on the Sussex Coast

Shoreham Beach on the Sussex Coast

Warm enough for a dip in the sea? Head for Shoreham!

The Sussex coast is just 6 miles from Steyning at Shoreham by Sea. The beach there is a designated Local Nature Reserve and you’ll find a variety of plants growing on the shingle.

On a windy day you will find windsurfers making the most of the weather and perhaps some kite surfers too.

Drive there or catch the number 2 bus!

It will be far quieter than Brighton (10 miles away).
