Littlehampton to Black Rabbit

Date(s) - 15/12/2019
10:30 - 12:00

Littlehampton to Arundel – An ideal trip for the newcomer and can be considered by the more experienced like a visit to the gym to keep the muscles ticking over. With the incoming tide and the prevailing wind behind us, the 7 miles to the Black Rabbit pub go quickly by. Launching from the Littlehampton lifeboat station slipway, passing the moored pleasure boats and the minimal industrialization of Littlehampton, you are quickly into the surrounding countryside. There are good views of the Downs and Arundel town with its fine castle and Cathedral to the North. We would probably stop for a bite to eat by the windmill house on the outskirts of this well-heeled town. The houses that front onto the river are very “des res” and easy on the eye. The river widens out for the last couple of miles until we arrive at the Black Rabbit Pub – time for refreshment?
