WATER Catchments

The River Adur

The River Adur is one of the four main rivers that drain the county of Sussex. 

Going upstream from its estuary at Shoreham by Sea, the river is tidal and is contained within man-made embankments for a distance of some 9 miles through the ‘Shoreham gap’ in the South Downs until it gets to a fork just west of Henfield.
