Staying on the South Coast visiting a friend, and had to come and re-visit Beachy Head. Pleased to also spot the Trig as we pulled up in the nearby car park. Went for a wander first and then grabbed this on the way back. Rather blustery up here this evening.

Trig just opposite The Beachy Head pub. Trig in good condition, centre cap intact with lightly indented letterings, left sighthole open, all other sightholes closed. Absolutely stunning views from the cliff edge. A short walk from the trig and there is a perfect spot to sit where the cables for the service trolley for the lighthouse are. Stunning!!!

First of the day and a trip to a YOSM Mr U2 already had in the bag, we had bags of time before meeting our YOSM admin colleague at the elusive YSM006 Roedean Road Surface Block, so managed to squash a couple in before hand.

Pillar fine with cap in place and shallow lettering; one sight-hole open. Don't people take incredibly unnecessary risks at cliff edges (witnessed two incidents, one person risking his life for a better photo, and a group of lads playing 'chicken'); really freaks me out. Later, I saw on the local news that there'd been a significant landslip just a little further along the coast at the Seven Sisters with tons of chalky soil falling into the sea.

Number 5 of 5 today. Lovely spot, Had refreshments in nearby pub before bagging this one in the setting sun. Good condition considering it very public location, all in tact as previous logs.... now home after a long day, full of fun, laughing and exploring.

Easy find - opposite 'countryside centre' on green sward. TP in vgc on concrete base with OS plaque. Nobody about, in brief bright interlude between heavy rain showers - good sea and skyscapes.

Beautiful place with great views and a very easy bag. Parked in the car park opposite and strolled over. It was crazy up there though - there was some sort of speed skateboarding event going on, so there were young trendies and ageing hippies all over the place. I quickly and discretely bagged this one trying to look cool.

It seemed a bit of a cheat driving here rather than walking but I recall being here in 1996 having walked from Worthing so I suppose my conscious should be clear. I had fog up here that day so it was good to come back on a clear day like today to bag the trig.

Stayed in Hastings overnight; this is the first trig of my second day of trigpointing. Raining hard in short, sharp showers but managed to bag this one in between them. Good condition with all the metalwork in place. Views are exactly what you would expect from standing on the top of Beachy Head. It was blowing a gale up there! For those that are interested, this is YSM016.

Return visit to Beachy Head on a summer's day. Lots of visitors, cars and coaches. There was even an area alongside the pillar marked out as a Hang Glider landing area! Still, the pillar was still in good condition.

Last visited this pillar some two years ago. I have logged it in order to test the system. I would guess that it is unchanged today. The photograph doesn't do justice to the weather that day. It was overcast and very dull with strong winds and rain.

Living in Eastbourne I could hardly not visit this Trig Point, especially when there is a Pub within 100 yards of it ;-) Just be careful not to go to close to the cliff edge it is a long way down! My Dad is also a volunteer member of The Beachy Head Chaplaincy, a local charity dedicated to prevention of suicides at Beachy Head, they patrol the East Sussex cliffs in the evenings, and been credited with reducing suicides there.

Visited many times over the years with Putney Walking Club, including once in 1995 when we expected to lunch at the adjacent pub, only to find it burned down, necessitating a very swift transit to East Dean to make it just before closing time. On this occasion, with the Linguist, walking from Seaford to Eastbourne.
