2. Under the chalk cliffs

Beneath the chalk cliffs

Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge

Picture 2/Story 2

I discovered a lovely walk that starts from the Brighton Marina, which runs along the sea wall and under the chalk cliffs for about 4½km to the village of Saltdean. Not many people seem to know about it and it’s a lovely respite from the tourist crowds.

The white limestone cliffs against the rest of the monochromatic landscape is beautiful. The exceptional feature about it is that there is a motorway above the cliff and you cannot see or hear it. Walking along the path, you might imagine cows and fields. This is even more impressive if you realise that the cliffs are continually eroding and the road sits right on top of it. I kept looking up to see if I would witness a Mini and a bit of cliff hurtling toward the sea. In the event, nothing happened and I lived to tell the tale.

If you want to look it up, the walk is descriptively called the Brighton Undercliff Walk.

  1. Fantastic photo! Such beautiful tones and lines and that you captured a lone person and bike makes just makes this image! I’m not sure I would be comfortable sitting at the base of this cliff, no matter how gorgeous though 😉

    Now I’m off to visit Day 1 🙂

      1. What a nice thing to say 🙂 But I’m barely keeping my head above water at the moment … So I’ll have to be content with enjoying your wonderful photo stories! 👍🏻

      2. That’s a shame. But I know what you mean. It was a real push for me to think about & prepare 5 consecutive pictures & stories. And you run much more activity on your blog than I do !
