From Henfield to Shermanbury
The Baybridge Canal connected the western branch of the River Adur at Bines Bridge through two locks to West Grinstead but is now derelict. There were also locks on the eastern branch that enabled navigation beyond Henfield. The river cannot be navigated at low tide and care must be taken at other times because of the strong tidal flow.
The former Southwick Canal now forms part of Shoreham Harbour.
