Selsey derived its name from the Saxon name of "Seals-ey", or Island of Seals as it was at that time.
Selsey is a small seaside town just 8 miles from Chichester on the West Sussex coast.
It lies at the tip of the Manhood Peninsula and is almost an island, being surrounded on three sides by the sea, and on the fourth side by the Broad Rife, a local stream.
