Littlehampton is a seaside resort town in West Sussex, England, on the east bank at the mouth of the River Arun. Its port is based around the River Arun and a small stretch of sea 5 miles out to sea and 6 miles wide which is locally known as the "Littlehampton Channel". Littlehampton started as a fishing town but now is a thriving port for thousands of leisure craft which visit from all over the UK and Europe. Littlehampton is also a commercial port, handling around 50-60 ships a year from Ireland, Holland, Germany, Belgium and France with cargo including marine aggregates, stone, marble chippings and timber.[1]
