ADUR, or Alder (The), a river of Sussex. It rises in St. Leonard's forest, in the neighbourhood of Horsham; and runs about 20 miles southward, past Ashurst and Steyning, to the English Channel at Shoreham. It affords good trouting above Bolney, and is noted for its mullet further down. It is navigable to Binesbridge.
