Tranquil scene, no shortage of water!

These are the Cuckmere meanders. The main river runs in a straight cut from the Exceat bridge, where the A259 crosses it, down to the sea. That is beyond the right side of this shot. The old river course is now a serpentine lake, fed by water off the Downs and linked by sluices with the new cut. The hill on the left is Haven Brow, with the first of the Seven Sisters cliffs on the seaward side. The flat bit is where the river meets the sea and where there is a nice, shingle beach. As there is no vehicle access and a concrete path only three quarters of the way to the beach, it's never crowded. The only buildings are four, much photographed, former coastguard cottages., which are hidden by the twigs on the right. This must be one of the least developed estuaries on the south coast.
