This walk is of particular interest in the winter to see some of the migratory birds that visit Pagham Harbour, but is a very pleasant walk on any fine day. The footpath in the corner of the car park takes you down to the edge of Pagham Harbour where you can enjoy the view across the harbour with Pagham and its church to the east, and Chichester Cathedral and the South Downs to the north. Looking to the south on the left is an area of shingle bank fenced off in the breeding season for the little terns and ringed plover. There are quite a few plants of interest growing in the shingle including large clumps of yellow-horned poppy and sea kale. Having enjoyed the views return to the car park where it is well worth visiting St. Wilfrid’s Chapel. This is in fact the chancel of the original medieval building; the rest of the original church was moved in 1864 to Selsey to serve the growing population and became the parish church of Saint Peter.
