Durdle Door

Durdle Door is a natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset, England. It is privately owned by the Welds, a family who own 12,000 acres (50 km2) in Dorset in the name of the Lulworth Estate. It is open to the public. The name Durdle is derived from the Old English 'thirl' meaning bore or drill.

Temple Island

Temple Island is an island in the River Thames in England just north (downstream) of Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. The island is on the reach above Hambleden Lock between the Buckinghamshire and Berkshire banks, and is part of Remenham in Berkshire. The main significance of the island is that it lies at the start of the course for Henley Royal Regatta. The island includes an elegant ornamental temple (a folly) designed by the 18th century English architect James Wyatt and constructed in 1771. It was designed as a fishing lodge for Fawley Court, a nearby historic house that Wyatt also remodelled in the 1770s on the commission of its owner, Sambrooke Freeman.

Concrete Harbour Arm

Throughout the history of Hastings, attempts have been made to build a satisfactory harbour. Repeatedly, the exposed shores and rough seas have succeeded in destroying the builders’endeavours. The remains of a harbour that was possibly Elizabethan were discovered in 1807. There may well have been a Roman harbour but there is no archaeological evidence of this.“Over the centuries repeated attempts have been made to construct a harbour but these have been destroyed by storms. Not only climate but also cash have brought about the failure of harbour construction. It was certainly cash that played the major part in the final, failed attempt, the remains of which are seen today.

Praia do Evaristo

Evaristo Beach is very small and huddled between truncated spurs of rock. Gigantic rocks litter the sand and under the water, inviting snorkelers to view the underwater rocks, where the marine life is abundant.

Rock Pier

Praia do Evaristo

Eastbourne Pier

The Eastbourne Pier Company was registered in April 1865 with a capital of £15,000 and on 18 April 1866 work began. It was opened by Lord Edward Cavendish on 13 June 1870, although it was not actually completed until two years later. On New Year's Day 1877 the landward half was swept away in a storm. It was rebuilt at a higher level, creating a drop towards the end of the pier. The pier is effectively built on stilts that rest in cups on the sea-bed allowing the whole structure to move during rough weather. It is roughly 300 metres (1000 ft) long. A domed 400-seater pavilion was constructed at a cost of £250 at the seaward end in 1888.

Beachy Head Lighthouse

Beachy Head is a chalk headland in the United Kingdom, close to the town of Eastbourne in the county of East Sussex, Because mist and low clouds could hide the light of Belle Tout, another lighthouse was built in the sea below Beachy Head. It was 43 m (141 ft) in height and became operational in October 1902. For more than 80 years, the red-and-white striped tower was manned by three lighthouse keepers. Their job was to maintain the light, which rotates two white flashes every 20 seconds was then visible 26 miles (42 km) out to sea. The lighthouse was fully automated in 1983 and the keepers withdrawn.

Chalk Glacier.

The Seven Sisters are a series of chalk cliffs by the English Channel. They form part of the South Downs in East Sussex, between the towns of Seaford and Eastbourne in southern England. They are within the Seven Sisters Country Park. They are the remnants of dry valleys in the chalk South Downs, which are gradually being eroded by the sea.

Our Lady

The Beach launched fishing fleet, based at the "Stade" remains Europe's largest and has recently won accreditation for its sustainable methods. The fleet has been based on the same beach, below the cliffs at Hastings, for at least 400, possibly 600, years. Its longevity is attributed to the prolific fishing ground of Rye Bay nearby. Hastings fishing vessels are registered at Rye, and thus bear the letters "RX" (Rye,SusseX).
