On the Bridge is time location project where we are shooting a series of recurring locations at different times of the year : some times only a week apart other more than 6 months : The project being used to create a new stock of work where Winter, Spring , Summer & Autumn show the differing weather , events and water courses from three bridges.
The Adur begins as two separate branches, the western Adur and the eastern Adur, which meet just west of Henfield
at Betley Bridge.
The western Adur rises at Slinfold
from where it flows around Coolham
and then through Shipley
, where it meets Lancing Brook and flows on to West Grinstead
and Knepp Castle
. The western Adur is tidal as far north as Bines Bridge near Bines Green
, south of West Grinstead.
The eastern Adur rises at Ditchling Common
, in East Sussex
, from where it crosses into West Sussex and meets another major stream at Twineham
. At Shermanbury
, the eastern Adur is fed by the Cowfold Stream.
From west of Henfield, the two branches of the river meet, before flowing between Upper Beeding
, past Coombes
, through a gap in the South Downs
near Lancing College
where the Adur is fed by the Ladywell Stream. The river continues on to the English Channel
. The mouth of the Adur is now two miles (3 km) from the town centre of Shoreham due to longshore drift
