PHOTOGRAPHS of an historic waterway is to go on display.

Two years ago Michael Edwards was cycling along the road from Hunston to North Mundham, in Chichester, when he saw glimpses of the old canal and wondered how much of it was still intact.

He joined the Chichester Ship Canal Society and, with help from Keith Wileman and Ann Edwards, they set about photographing as much of it as they could find.

Mr Edwards will discuss his journey at the Emsworth Maritime and Historical Trust on Monday, February 24 where the photographs will be on display.

The slide show is in the Mountford Rooms, Church Path Community Centre, Church Path, Emsworth, starting at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £1.50 for trust members and £3 for non-members.
