A short West Sussex walk that is ideal for combing with a leisurely lunch at Dell Quay. Depending on tides you will have varying views from mudflats to high water. The start is the car park (grid ref. SU835010) which is reached off the A286 south of Stocksbridge and signed Chichester Marina.
After parking walk along the south side of the Marina with the many craft to your right. Cross the lock gates and continue north along the footpath running parallel to the shores of the Chichester Channel for just over a mile to Dell Quay.
Turn right along Dell Quay Road, which leads back to the A286. After 500 metres take the footpath (track) on your right (grid ref. SU840027). This leads you past New Barn Farm on your left and continues back to the western end of Chichester Marina. Here turn left, and with the boats to your right, complete the circuit of the Marina and return to the car park.
