Dive sites off Bognor Regis Beach

  • Dive sites off Bognor Regis
    Dive sites off Bognor Regis

There’s some excellent diving along the English Channel coast around Bognor Regis.

The historic D-Day invasion of Normandy in 1944, which helped to end the Second World War, involved the invading British, American and Canadian troops taking their own harbours with them. These were constructed by linking together hundreds of concrete boats called Mulberries, as the codename for the invasion was Operation Mulberry.

The Far Mulberry

One of the pre-constructed units sank just a mile off the Pagham shore. Lying in 10 metres of water, it is rated as one of England’s top dives and great for fish life. A damaged Mulberry can be seen at low tide on the beach at Aldwick, about a mile west of West beach.

The Moxon Hole

A famous Roman river site about half a mile out from Selsey Bill, which can be seen across the bay to the west. It’s a fantastic wall dive starting from only 6 metres and dropping dramatically to 28 metres, featuring ancient fortifications hundreds of years old.

Bognor Reef

A favourite shore dive in 5 metres of water. Many different species of fish and crustaceans make their home there. You can generally see the rocks that make up the reef at mid to low tide, in an arc to the west of the pier.

The Moldova

This P&O liner sank in 1918 and lies in 45 metres of water off Bognor Regis. It was named by Diver Magazine in 2000 as the third most interesting divable wreck around Britain.

Jubilee drinking fountain

  • Jubilee Drinking Fountain
    Jubilee Drinking Fountain

During the 1890’s Bognor Regis visitors were coming into the town from London and other places in the South of England to enjoy the seaside. However one shopkeeper James Hughes, a chemist in West Street, was very concerned that the large number of children who visited the area could not obtain even a drink of water. James’ shop in West Street looked down the length of The Steyne to the seafront promenade, a site he believed would be ideal for a drinking fountain.

As with many new ideas, others did not perceive his suggestion as being of any importance, as many of the council in 1897 were more concerned with the celebrations for Queen Victoria’s sixtieth anniversary as Queen. James Hughes was very keen on his suggestion and started a fund to raise the necessary cash, and at the same time ‘Bodie of Aberdeen’ selected a design.

The fountain cost a staggering £111 and on July 6th 1898 it was unveiled, and became a permanent reminder of Queen Victoria’s jubilee celebrations.

The fountain was moved from its original place on the promenade looking into The Steyne and in 1928 it was removed to the corner of Waterloo Square.

it was decided in 1956 that the corner of Waterloo Square would be more suitable for an entertainment and leisure, so the fountain was dismantled and removed, to Hotham Park, where it lay undisturbed in pieces until 1966.

The Natural Science Society sought its whereabouts and asked for the fountain to be re-erected. Nothing happened until 1968 when builder Mr R J Seymour was looking through his collection of old photographs of Bognor and came across one of the original ceremony, and again called for the re-erection of the fountain.

The public were asked to contribute and a fund of ''sixpences and shillings'' was started. Numerous locations were considered, one of which was in front of Hotham Park House. Another proposed site was in Marine Park Gardens.

Finally, a location was agreed and in January, 1969, all the sections of the fountain were moved to the current resting place, on the promenade end of the Steyne.

The Drinking Fountain stands as a reminder of Victorian times, although today it is disused.
