Fishbourne
The village of Fishbourne is located at the head of Chichester Channel, one of the long arms of Chichester Harbour. The village is most famous as the site of Fishbourne Palace, the largest Roman villa in England. The site was discovered by accident in 1960 while the ground was being excavated for a new water main. Finds from the palace can be seen in the excellent museum.
A mile or so to the west is Bosham, a historic village popular as a boating centre.
