B2179 Birdham – Chichester
East Wittering

The B2179 is a loop around Sussex's Manhood Peninsula. The road was unclassified in 1922 but gained its number in the late 1920s, originally running from Chichester to West Wittering. By 1935 the road had been extended on to Bracklesham but the original section of the road had been upgraded to become the A286. That road was cut back to Birdham in the 1970s and the B2179 gained part of its old route back.

The road starts on the B2198 in Bracklesham and heads west through East Wittering before a brief rural section leads into West Wittering. It follows a winding route through the village and is heading northeastwards by the time it reaches open country once more. After a sharp bend to the right we run through the scattered village of Shipton Green before, on the western side of Birdham, a roundabout is met. This is where we meet up again with the B2198 (which has taken a far shorter route) and the A286 continues on into Chichester.
