January 2023: volunteer work party to maintain/ clear undergrowth at Chalder Platform.
August 27th 2023: ‘Walk The Selsey Tram Way’ –126th anniversary of the first train.
A leaflet giving directions for ‘Walk The Selsey Tram Way’ has been printed. Copies are now available at RSPB Visitors Centre Pagham Harbour, Selsey Town Hall, The Novium and the café at Chichester Canal Basin. It can also be downloaded from the Walks and Trails page.
The interactive map can be downloaded from the above tramway page link or https://bit.ly/SelseyTramway .
The interactive map enables people to walk the route in both directions, whereas the walking guide only has directions from Chichester to Selsey. The interactive map has additional information about places of interest along the route, including the 11 stations.
Feedback received from people trialling the walking directions was great – it would be good to hear some feedback on the interactive route via our contact form.
Thanks for your continued interest and support.
