Caption for Selsey, Lifeboat House 1930: Unlike Rye, the medieval town of Selsey lies below sea level owing to coastal erosion. It was the seat of an Anglo-Saxon bishopric, hence the local legend of a cathedral under the sea.

Lobster pots, small fishing boats and flint cobble walled fishermen's cottages survive the tide of modern housing.
