Brighton Marina has had an interesting history since its conception almost 40 years ago. It was opened by HM The Queen and has become the largest Marina complex in Europe.
The Ditchling - Beautiful panorama viewing is possible from viewing points along the mountain range stretching for miles close to the south coast.
Brighton Marina Overview Brighton, despite the lack of natural shelter offered on this part of the South Coast, has been a port since the 14th Century. The town's proximity to, and good communications with, London, even in the days of horse drawn vehicles, accounted mainly for this. A thriving fishing community has also existed for many centuries.
The lack of shelter brought many proposals over the years, for the construction of a proper harbour; the first in 1806 was for a wharf, graving dock and 50 warehouses.
In 1823, the Chain Pier was constructed and in 1830, a Captain Brown brought forward a proposal, which would have used the Chain Pier as a breakwater, infilling the structure with chalk. This idea was dismissed as being too costly.
