A short walk up the bridleway opposite the Fishbourne pub takes visitors to Quarr Abbey a Benedictine Abbey with an attractive tea room and gardens plus art gallery and nature walks. A pleasant diversion and popular with both locals and visitors. The website is www.quarrabbey,co.uk.

The notes for Wootton Creek were updated by Don T on 21st January 2013. Local developements have reduced the provision of moorings within the creek leaving the RVYC as the only spot which welcomes the cruising yachtie.
