Visit Emsworth and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Emsworth, Hampshire, lies between two small creeks on the extreme south east corner of the county, on Chichester harbour.
It is an old port, which had its heyday in the 18th century and then fell on less prosperous times, until it became a yachting centre and took on a new lease of life. Yacht building is Emsworth's chief industry, and the harbour is usually bright with the masts of small boats.
There are some good Georgian corners in the town, and two splendid old tide mills, which obtained their power from the inflow of tidal water. One stands out against the jetty down on the quayside, and the other is not far away to the west of the town.
At Warblington, 1½ mile west, the church has a Saxon core, and, in the churchyard, huts for watchmen against body-snatchers who crept up from the nearby creek at the dead of night.
