Englands South Coast

In October 2016 My son and I took a photo trip around Englands south coast. We started from Nottingham and drove down to Bournemouth where we spent a couple of days visiting tourist sites, moved onto Beachy Head, Bodiam and other locations south of London before heading up to Norwich for a couple of days and then heading back to Nottingham. It was a great trip, the weather surprisingly held out with only one full day of rain in our 10 day trip, needless to say we got very lucky for October/November time. Below is a few shots from Englands South Coast.. enjoy! 

Beachy Head is a chalk headland in East Sussex, England. It is situated close to Eastbourne, immediately east of the Seven Sisters. The chalk was formed in the Late Cretaceous epoch, between 66 and 100 million years ago, when the area was under the sea. During the Cenozoic Era, the chalk was uplifted. When the last Ice Age ended, sea levels rose and the English Channel formed, cutting into the chalk to form the dramatic cliffs along the Sussex coast.

Bodiam Castle (/ˈboʊdiəm/) is a 14th-century moated castle near Robertsbridge in East Sussex, England. It was built in 1385 by Sir Edward Dalyngrigge, a former knight of Edward III, with the permission of Richard II, ostensibly to defend the area against French invasion during the Hundred Years’ War. Of quadrangular plan, Bodiam Castle has no keep, having its various chambers built around the outer defensive walls and inner courts. Its corners and entrance are marked by towers, and topped by crenellations. Its structure, details and situation in an artificial watery landscape indicate that display was an important aspect of the castle’s design as well as defence. It was the home of the Dalyngrigge family and the centre of the manor of Bodiam.
