There is some really good mud at high cliff near Christchurch a little exposed through the day but always good on the night ranges from ankle deep to waist deep in places

I have been a few times when I lived down south and spent many exciting hours up on the cliffs
The cliffs still own a pair of pink rubber boots of mine from when I was a teenager after they were sucked off by the mud
It’s really worth a look down there and if your wearing rainwear and wellies you will fit in just right cause it’s full of fossil hunters
If there has been some serious rain the mud often washes down to the beach in a sticky liquid form which is also nice to play in
Be warned tho it’s sticky in places and I wouldn’t go by yourself unless your prepared to dig yourself out if you get stuck

I don't know exactly where you are based,but there is a good place near Wareham, Dorset. The bridge that takes the Wareham bypass over the river Frome has a lot of mud underneath one of the arches, and there is also the river itself to get cleaned off afterwards. There is no public access, but if you go early in the morning no ever bothered me. You used to be able to leave your car in Stoborough with no charge.

It's not strictly the south coat, but depending on where you are, either the severn estuary by the old Severn bridge (wide mudflats that mostly aren't too deep, but hit at least thigh deep in some of the creeks) or burnham on sea (soft mudflats from calf deep or deeper, exercise caution) might be options

There's also good mud along from Lyme Regis, and as girlinwellies notes, "fossil hunting" is a perfectly decent explanation for what you are doing there.

Some lovely slippy mud near frampton on severn and frethern on the banks of the severn and quite secluded for those who don’t want to be seen :)

How did your search for muddy places go, Valenteen? Did you manage to visit any of the places mentioned?
