The Beachy Head Suicide Rock
Loading images, Please wait...
Beachy Head is a chalk headland in Southern England, close to the town of Eastbourne in the county of East Sussex, immediately east of the Seven Sisters. Beachy Head is located within the administrative area of the Eastbourne Borough Council which owns the land. The cliff there is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain, rising to 162 m (530 ft) above sea level. The peak allows views of the south east coast from Dungeness to the east, to Selsey Bill in the west. Its height has also made it one of the most notorious suicide spots in the world.
Waves gradually erode the rock, which is why there are small avalanches of stones. Large landslides are less common. The last major cliff collapse occurred in 2001, due to strong spring rains.
