Bosham is a coastal village and civil parish in the Chichester District of West Sussex, England, centred about 2mi west of Chichester with its clustered developed part west of this. Its land forms a broad peninsular projecting into natural Chichester Harbour where Bosham has its own harbour and inlet on the western side.GeographyThe parish has an area of 3400acre. In the 2001 census its 2,847 people lived in 1,313 households, of whom 1,358 were economically active.NeighbourhoodsBroadbridgeBroadbridge, sometimes known as North Bosham more developed round the A259 road and the Coastway railway line including Bosham railway station as with most stations in the county with direct services to London as well as the cities of Brighton and Portsmouth. The locality is increasingly referred to by its earlier name, Broadbridge.Bosham village and Bosham HoeBosham is surrounded by varying width green buffer land, the vast bulk of which is the south of the peninsular. This includes the site of the original village centre around the harbour as well as the farmland and private property of Bosham Hoe. At spring tides the sea comes up high flooding the rural lower road and some car parking spaces.HistoryRomanThe site has been inhabited since Roman times, and is close to the famous villa at Fishbourne. The Romans were responsible for the village's Mill Stream as there was no fresh water, and built a basilica there. Tradition holds that Emperor Vespasian maintained a residence in Bosham, although there is little evidence of this. There are, however, the remains of a villa popularly thought to belong to Vespasian, at the Stone Wall in the parish. Pottery and tile fragments, of both Roman and early British period, have been discovered in the area, confirming pre-Anglo-Saxon activity.
