The Seven sisters view and coast guard cottages

The Seven Sisters is a series of chalk cliffs by the English Channel, between Seaford and Eastbourne.
There are seven hills (known as The Seven Sisters), with an eighth one being created by the erosion of the sea. The names of the cliffs from west to east are: Haven Brow, Short Brow, Rough Brow, Brass Point, Flagstaff Brow, Bailey's Hill and Went Hill
From this point you can see The Belle Tout Lighthouse sitting on the edge on the horizon, the low point in the cliffs just below the lighthouse is Birling Gap, just behind the cottages is the mouth to the River Cuckmere.

Also accessible from this location is Hope Gap, Just to the right of the Cottages follow the cliff edge around until you reach some steps going down.
