'Richly illustrated...An engrossing story that stretches far into the past, present and future' --- West Sussex Gazette
'This book, which includes previously unpublished memoirs and features famous figures from King Canute to PG Wodehouse, draws together the threads that have given the harbour its unique character, telling an engrossing story that stretches far into the past. It encompasses topics as varied as geological and historical tumult, the harbour's importance for threatened wildlife, the change from commercial port to centre for leisure pursuits, the impact of war and the threat from climate change. Liz Sague, who has sailed its waters for many years, brings to life the people who have contributed so much to Chichester Harbour.' --- Sussex Life

The photographs are excellent, they capture the essence of the harbour in all its moods and states of the tide. We have an abundance of wildlife and there are numerous good photos of the birds and mammals seen in the harbour.
This is a book for those who appreciate British wildlife, unspoilt scenery, coastal sailing and local history.
