The Wadeway: Investigation of the Medieval Crossing Point from Langstone Village to Hayling Island
Chichester Harbour Conservancy's 'Rhythms of the Tide' project has provided the opportunity to investigate the Wadeway, a now disused causeway between the north of Hayling Island and the adjacent mainland at Langstone. Results of this work, by means of survey, excavation, radiocarbon dating and palaeoenvironmental analysis, have demonstrated that the Wadeway is medieval in date and is most likely to have been constructed in the early to mid 14 th century. Establishing the age of the Wadeway has allowed the feature to be interpreted within its historic context and has also added to our knowledge of the development of Chichester and Langstone Harbours.
