We’ve all heard of the white cliffs of Dover, but the white cliffs of East Sussex are even more impressive. At 162 metres, Beachy Head is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain. Its sudden drop and sheer wall have made it an iconic image – not to mention the beautiful views across the English Channel. In fact, the name ‘Beachy Head’ has nothing to do with beaches: instead, it comes from the French beau chef meaning ‘beautiful headland’. They were certainly right about that!
But it’s not just a beautiful spot with picturesque views. This iconic headland has also been a stage for history. During the Nine Years’ War, the so-called Battle of Beachy Head took place just off the coast in 1690. During WW1, German U-Boats sank 30 merchant ships between Beachy Head and Eddystone. And if that isn’t exciting enough, it was here that Chitty Chitty Bang Bang flew for the very first time!
This design captures it all – the green of the grass, the white of the cliffs, the deep blue of the sea. Seagulls jostle overhead, and the red lighthouse towers over the waves – a beautiful scene to enjoy as you dry the dishes.
