  • Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters - (NT)

    Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters, East Sussex, South-East England

    Beauty Spot

    undeveloped coastline on the South Coast.

    Coastal erosion has already removed some of the row of coastguard cottages built in 1878, and those that remain are still inhabited. There is a cafe, shop and visitor centre there, run by The National Trust, and a large metal staircase leading down to the enclosed pebble beach and the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs. It is likely that soon it will no longer exist because the amount of erosion is so large that all the houses will have to be demolished before they fall into the sea, and because the houses are not worth enough, the Government will not place a sea defence in the way. If walkers are cut off at high tide, they can climb the ladder, which is replaced often, to Birling Gap.#more

    The beach, which was awarded the Blue flag rural-beach award in 2005, is advertised by Naturist UK.[8] It has a large number of rockpools.

    Noted artist Jean Cooke lived in two cottages at Birling Gap. She painted the seascape there and died in 2008 while looking at the sea.

    Park

    Sheffield Park Garden is an informal landscape garden five miles east of Haywards Heath, in East Sussex, England.

    South-East England - East Sussex, Uckfield

    Sheffield Park Garden is an informal landscape garden five miles east of Haywards Heath, in East Sussex, England.

    It was originally laid out in the 18th century by Capability Brown, and further developed in the early years of the 20th century's by its then owner, Arthur Gilstrap Soames. It is now owned by the National Trust.

    The garden is a horticultural work of art formed through centuries of landscape design, with influences of 'Capability' Brown and Humphry Repton. Four lakes form the heart of the garden, with paths circulating through the glades and wooded areas surrounding them. Previous owners have left their impression; this can still be seen today in the layout of the lakes, the construction of Pulham Falls, the planting of Palm Walk and the many different tree and shrub species from around the world.
