Selsey is a defining point along the West Sussex coast. Selsey Bill juts out into the English Channel forming a well-defined point separating Portsmouth (Hampshire) from Bognor Regis. To the west of Selsey is the beautiful long Bracklesham Bay beach which extends all the way along the coast to Chichester Harbour. To the east of Selsey is the much smaller Pagham Harbour (local nature reserve), followed by beaches extending all the way along the West Sussex coast through Bognor Regis, Littlehampton and Worthing to the new City of Brighton and Hove (East Sussex). Selsey itself benefits from a lifeboat station, coast guard station and windwill (which is a delightful landmark). More unusually, there is (was also a “sound mirror” at Selsey – which has now been converted into a small house. (This is a grade 2 listed building). This coastal promontory is home to a larger community than one might expect, but is currently under threat from the sea so there is a campaign to maintain Selsey’s Costal Defence .
Places surrounding Selsey tend to be a mile or more away but include Bracklesham, Earnley, Almodington, Highleigh, Sidlesham Common, Street End Sidlesham, Nyetimber, Pagham and Church Norton.
