Title: The River Arun : fact file
Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Environment Agency booklet aims to analsye the River Arun catchment. The River Arun rises 120 metres above sea level in the High Weald of St Leonard's Forest, to the east of Horsham. The river, fed by springs in the Tunbridge Wells Sandstone strata, runs westwards before turning south at Bucks Green, where hard rocks give way to the Wealden Clay. From here the Arun meanders through a broad floodplain to Pallingham, the tidal limit, even though it still has nearly thirty kilometres to run before meeting the sea. This document contains sections on: history; water quality; flora and fauna; flood defence; fisheries; recreation; water resources and preventing pollution from industry.
