Sussex coast
« on: 20:32:54, 08/10/17 »
I do a lot of walking on the Sussex coast so here are a few photos of some of my recent walks there

The Seven Sisters

Wild flowers at Saltdean, which is about halfway between Brighton and Newhaven

The marina at Newhaven on the estuary of the Ouse

The next two are of the cliffs to the east of Hastings. The clifftop walk from Hastings eastwards to Fairlight is fantastic, with the path plunging down into deep wooded ravines

Hastings

The church of St Mary de Haura and the harbour town of Shoreham on the estuary of the Adur

Marshes at Pagham Harbour

The beach at Pagham

Chichester Harbour, a vast area of creeks and marshes, is one of my favourite places for walking. These two pictures are of the creek at Dell Quay

Thanks for looking    :)

Lovely photos.
Reminded me that my parents took me on holiday to Pagham when I was about 3. We stayed in a converted railway carriage. Funny the things you remember
Most walks start by finding the way out of the car park

Great photos. I have one of the Seven Sisters taken from a similar spot and I remember the path east from Hastings to Fairlight was a bit steeper than I expected with the drop into the ravine. Happy memories. Thanks
These boots are made for walking.... so long as the rest of my body agrees

Lovely photos Dovegirl.  I like the Pagham Beach one.... big skies, calm sea, and rock marker which draws the eye.


(certainly better than the one you took of the full stop in your other topic  ;)   ;D  )


I must try and bag some new counties down yon end o'country next year  :)
No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

Those pictures are beautiful, Dovegirl. I love the one of the cliffs at Hastings especially, the colours and light are breathtaking. Thanks for sharing.  :) O0

Thank you everyone for the kind comments    :)   

Penygadair, Rather be walking, sunnydale   -   many thanks    :)

Reminded me that my parents took me on holiday to Pagham when I was about 3. We stayed in a converted railway carriage.

Converted railway carriages do seem to be a feature of some coastal spots. Must have been fun staying in one.

I remember the path east from Hastings to Fairlight was a bit steeper than I expected with the drop into the ravine.

I think the ascents from Hastings to Fairlight seem steeper than the Seven Sisters!   

(certainly better than the one you took of the full stop in your other topic  ;)   ;D  )

Glad you think so Mel!   :D ;D

I love the one of the cliffs at Hastings especially

There are some good walks from Hastings   :)

Love the seven sisters one

My favourite walk    :)

Glad to know that the full-stop test was so successful. ;)   Such great photos!  I thought I knew the South Coast quite well but Pagham is new to me.  And the stunning Hastings cliff views look very enticing.
Thanks a lot.

Thanks JW    :)    Hastings to Fairlight has a surprisingly wild and remote atmosphere. The path is subject to diversion because of erosion but it's still a great walk
