Take a step back to 1897 when the Selsey Tramway was brought to life – the work of Colonel Stephens, and officially named The Hundred of Manhood & Selsey Tramways Company Ltd (1897-1924) and West Sussex Railway (1924-35). It was also, during its lifetime, referred to many other names including the Sidlesham Snail and the Clickety Click thanks to its reputation as a slightly quirky means of transport.
A Selsey Tram trail which has been signposted for walkers to explore some of the former stations and countryside of the route has now been updated. Follow the “Walk The Selsey Tram Way’ signs to see which stops you can discover along the xx mile route. The project allows the story of the tramway to be kept alive as part of the area’s heritage, helped by new signage, information boards and walking guides.
