barbaradel, ~ Well it is certainly me :)))) but I realise it was my great friend Nick Knack that you really thought had taken this shot ~ but he would stand so much closer to the edge of the cliff than me :)) Best wishes ~ nick

GasGasL€X, ~ Good question and my answer is "I haven't a clue" ~ Maybe because the foundations are of hard rock where it is built rather than the crumbly chalk of the cliffs that slowly erode ~~~

Nick Knack Yep! I AM a caring kind of gal! But as you stated, lots of things in Life are worth a risk I suppose, I guess you and I both want Nick W to go get that "closer" shot, but we ask that he not risk a fall because we want the shot! but ya know, Nick W is always "on top of things" whether its a lovely building, a bridge or a cliff.... he can get it done! but "watch your step", Nick W..:)) Gotta run, Ive "get on top" of some lunch plans:)) Sarah

Nick Todaro on August 21, 2013

We're all caring Sarah O but perhaps some of us are too cautious and in that case a little encouragement could help!... I am sure that Nick will eventually get the shot we all want it is only a question of time! :) Lex, the answer to why the lighthouse is at sea is because of erosion above, cheaper at sea than have to move it inland like THIS ONE which was moved some years ago this one is at Birling Gap, not too far from Beachy Head and is called Belle Tout and it has a bar/restaurant and bed & Breakfast... if you stood with your back to it you'd see THIS VIEW in the far distance Beachy Head Lighthouse at sea!...

Sarah O, ~ & ~ Nick Knack ~ As someone who has abseiled down mountainside cliffs probably higher than this and climbed said mountain faces I perhaps have some task for adventure, but prefer to do it roped up ~ in fact to abseil without a rope would seem to require free-fall :~))))

Nick Todaro on August 21, 2013

Nick, "As someone who has abseiled down mountainside cliffs probably higher than this"... I rest my case because the cliff above is no more than 30 meters high, so how much higher did you really climb... a few centimeters! :)) Only joking I remember once you telling me that you climbed the Matterhorn!
