Almodington near Selsey
The land around Almodington is prime growing county.
Fertile soils and hours of sunshine make this one of the most horticulturally productive strips of land in the south. You'll see plenty of glasshouses around Almodington as a consequence and the likelihood is that, in time, there will be even more glasshouses built nearby - which is not universally popular (to say the least) with Almodington residents, many of whom are campaigning against the move.
One of the reasons that Almodington is so quiet stems from the road system. Almodington isn't quite the road to nowhere - it just isn't the main road to Selsey or East Wittering. This makes it a fairly quiet place, a little inland, but still a great base for a quiet holiday near the sea - the whole of the Manhood Peninsula is very popular with holiday makers and there's a large caravan park close by.
Attractions nearby include Earnley Butterflies Birds and Beasts, Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve and the beaches at Selsey, East Wittering and Bracklesham Bay.
Look out too for the ruined smock mill at Somerley, just to the west of Almodington (sometimes referred to as Earnley Mill). The mill is in the process of being restored and will hopefully one day set its sails again to meet the Channel breezes.
