BOGNOR REGIS AND THE SPLENDOUR OF THE SOUTH COAST

Bognor Regis has been a seaside fishing settlement since Anglo Saxon times. It became a fashionable resort in the reign of Geroge III and has been frequented by royalty on numerous occasions. The resort is flat and has an excellent promenade walk. There is a pier and a delightful park- Hotham Park, which boasts a narrow gauge railway, putting green, crazy golf, tennis court and boating lake. On the beach between Bognor Regis and Aldwick lies the wreck of a floating pontoon – part of the Mulberry Harbour which was destined to be towed across to Normandy on D-Day, June 6, 1944 and was washed up on the beach shortly after D-Day. the beach is predominantly pebbly but the water is clean and the quality of the light often remarkable. Inland, the scenery is quintessentially English with the splendour of the South Downs, England’s newest National Park, very close at hand.
