Visiting the Sovereign Harbour

Submitted by Nicola Rainiero on 2013-07-12 (last updated on 2017-01-31)

Below I put a slideshow and a short video concerning the Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne. There are some beautiful hydraulic constructions such as pound locks and bascule bridges, which I found very interesting but maybe for the residents they are just a little annoying.

In the matter of Sovereign Harbour, Wikipedia said:
Opened in 1993, Sovereign Harbour is a development of the beachland in the seaside resort of Eastbourne, to the east of the town centre. Formerly known as The Crumbles, the marina now consists of four separate harbours, a retail park and several housing projects with both permanent and holiday properties. The marina was originally run by its developer, Carillion, until 2007 when it was bought by the Premier Marinas group, who also run several other marinas along the South Coast including Brighton, Chichester and Port Solent, among others.

In the evening this is more fascinating with the effects between lights and reflections in the water, but in daily time there are a lot of vessels' transit that liven up the four separate harbours and so the panorama is much more animated.
Also it is possible to see some fish and jellyfish in the artificial basins as I tried to show in my video (but the quality of my camera didn't help to figure out!).
