Pub history and pub wiki

Arun View, 2 Wharf Road, Littlehampton

Built circa 1864 and still remains today in an altered form. *
Previous research by others indicated that the Custom House Tavern was renamed the Arun View but the 1870 Kelly’s Directory listed both, each with its own proprietor; they must therefore have been separate premises. *
