The iconic chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters march off into the distance beyond the gravel beach at Birling Gap. The final white cliff in the distance is the headland of Seaford Head beyond Cuckmere Haven.

Excellent photo!!!..those iconic chalk cliffs, so redolent of the English south coast..The re-appear as far north as Flamborough Head on the Yorkshire coast

I wonder now, four years on, if the cliff-top home is still there> The white cliffs are showing signs of erosion!

Nice work!

hello Pete, this is a nice photo, well done. How do you access the beach from Birling Gap? Can you walk on the beach from Birling Gap towards Beachy Heads and Eastbourne?

Many and very belated thanks Fabio, Odeveld, Jim and The Man in the Maze for your great comments. Access to the beach here is by a sturdy steel staircase attached to the cliff. I'm not sure if it's possible to walk round to Eastbourne at low tide, I couldn't find anything with a quick search anyway.

Best regards
