Eastbourne and Beachy Head on a Beautiful Summer’s Day

Eastbourne Pier

On Sunday the 15th of July a group of us took the train to Eastbourne to walk the Beachy Head Circular Walk. Weather wise it was the most amazing of English summer days. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. Looking back at the photographs I realise that I should have stopped and taken more but we were walking and talking so I only captured some of the day. A truly beautiful day in a wonderful part of the country. The photo of the house is actually the end of I think four cottages. They originally were composed of eight or nine in a terrace as we saw in an exhibition in the visitors centre. They have long since fallen into the sea as this part of the coastline is old seabed laid down millions of years ago and is very soft and liable to rapid erosion. We need to take this into consideration when building and not try to play at being King Canute.
