Widewater Lagoon


Type:Natural Feature

Brighton Road, Lancing, West Sussex, BN15 8JT
Widewater Lagoon


Widewater Lagoon is a man-made feature, and lies south of the Brighton Road between Lancing and Shoreham. Hidden from view by houses along the road it is a landlocked brackish lagoon (approximately 1 km long but narrow) bordered on its south side by the sea defences and shingle beach. Water levels rise following high tides and heavy rainfall, but the varied levels produce a unique area for plant life and a resting place for a variety of birds including herons, swans and other wildfowl.
