PHOTO DIARY – SHOREHAM RIVER ADUR WALK (A SURPRISINGLY INSPIRING PLACE)
SHOREHAM BY SEA – ITS NOT ALL BAD!
Shoreham by the Sea. Perhaps for many, this does not conjure up the most exciting of images or inspire you to pay it a visit and in fact, it gets quite a bad press – however, I would suggest you are missing out! Not only does Shoreham boast a rather interesting harbour complete with house boats, it also has it’s own airport a diss-used cement works and various bits of industry and other excitement.
That said – I don’t go there myself often – but aware it has the River Adur running past it and sometimes keen to have a river walk, I sometimes attend it with my lens. Now the River Adur really is quite exciting – it passes through some curious places and as some of it is navigable by reasonably sized vessels, it has a good splattering of industry besides it banks. I love a bit of river side industry – especially now most of it has closed or been seriously scaled back. The result is numerous warehouses and factories that are in various states of diss repair. For me, that sort of location ranks alongside building sites for pure joy and excitement!
WALK ALONG RIVER ADUR IN SHOREHAM AND THE RESULTING PHOTOGRAPHS
So, my usual route when treading the banks of the Adur is obviously to head in the direction of the massive abandoned cement works – who wouldn’t! But, on this occasion, I thought a change was in order and perhaps the other way upstream would be just as interesting.
I can say it was – not only did I pass the airport but I spotted a myriad of lovely things on my way and found the whole walk very visually inspiring and interesting.
But, who needs words when you can have pictures! So here are some photos I took…
