River

The River Meon reaches the sea here

river

The seawall was constructed in 1611 and the River Meon now reaches the sea via the tidal flaps under the road bridge.

There are posts in front of some hides and fallen trees in the river, which provide resting places for birds and close-up views for birdwatchers.

Since 2008 otters have been living in the river and can sometimes be spotted.
