Today’s start and end points tell you nothing of one of the finest walks the coast of Britain has to offer: from Eastbourne over Beachy Head and Seven Sisters to the remarkable Cuckmere Haven and finally Seaford Head.
Wow! I spent the day brimming with joy and walking as well as I’ve done at any time. What a magnificent day.
All around on my journey I’ve been telling people proudly that I’m from Sussex, so to finish (almost) with this is the marzipan (which is much better than icing) on the cake.
Seven Sisters compares for me only with the Lulworth Ranges, Gower from Oxwich to Rhossili, and Pembrokeshire round Strumble Head (and parts of Cornwall, of course). Other cliffs have their qualities but the openness of the Sussex Downs truly is spectacular.
Now to get home is less far than I walked today (30kms) but I’m splitting into two days to accommodate friends and ambling and a Sunday afternoon / evening in Brighton.
If you want to meet me at any point on Monday, message me and I’ll tell you my timings between Brighton and Shoreham.
