The Parish of North Mundham is a largely agricultural and horticultural area south of Chichester. It is comprised of a scatter of small villages and hamlets, namely the three villages of North Mundham, South Mundham and Runcton and the hamlets of Bowley and Fisher.
Pagham Rife runs through the village of Runcton and for centuries powered Runcton Mill. The Rife eventually joins Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve, an area known for birds and wildlife. There are no roads leading directly to the sea in the Parish of North Mundham, but there is an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways putting you in easy reach of Pagham Harbour using transport other than the car.
