We arrived at Cuckmere Haven on a cold misty December day between Christmas and the new Year.
The river Cuckmere meanders slowly through the valley and meets the English Channel after crossing a stoney beach.
Standing on the shingle beach, to the east are The Seven Sisters and beyond, Beachy Head. On this day they were lost in the mist and low cloud
The coastguard cottages were built in 1822 to combat smugglers who frequently used the beach. I suspect the cottages are probably used by holidaymakers in summer. There was little sign of life on a cold, misty day at the end of December.
