The River Arun
Did you know that the region of Arun in West Sussex is named after the River Arun that runs through the area? It is formed by several small streams that join in the St Leonard’s Forest and meets the North River at Nowhurst. It finally discharges into the English Channel in Littlehampton. The river runs as one of the fastest rivers in England and is tidal for twenty five miles up stream.
Development Of The River Arun
During the 11th century the river was navigable from Ford down to the sea. The river was first developed in the 16th century in order to facilitate the movement of barges. Wharves were constructed at Ford, allowing the development of the town as a port. Then in the 18th century, two cuts were made through the sand bar: one in order to by pass a large river bend and a second to improve access to the upper port terminus. From the middle of the 19th century the development of railways meant the reduction in use of the river and ports. However, Littlehampton flourished due to the relocation of the custom house to the town.
Change Of River Course Over The Years
The Arun river at one time joined the River Adur at Lancing before entering the English Channel. However due to shingle blocking the mouth of the estuary, the course of the Adur was pushed towards Shoreham-By-Sea while the Arun veered towards Littlehampton.
