Chichester Canal

I love canals, possibly because they combine boats with the country, and all have a convenient towpath to walk along - some sort of bliss.

You can walk Chichester Canal from Chichester Marina, but this walk starts and finishes in Hunston, with the walk taking you into Chichester basin.  In reality, the Chichester canal was never a successful navigation, and so for years was neglected and unused. 

Today, however, you can take boat trips down the canal from the basin in Chichester, and this is worth trying, particularly if it includes a cream tea, but I'm not sure it really compares to walking the canal.  Perhaps you need to try both!
