Seaford & the Seven Sisters - Landscape Trip December 6th

For those interested in joining us on our merry little jaunt to the South Coast on Sunday December 6th here's a rough itinerary for the day.

06:45 - 07:00 Arrive

Seaford Head Car park.

Meet at the public car park at Seaford Head.

Allow roughly 2 1/2 hours for the drive from Milton Keynes to Seaford.

Post Code - BN25 4AR
OS grid reference - TV 50485 98042
Map Coordinates - N 50.762548 E 0.132311

07:15 - 09:45 Sunrise

Seaford Coastguard Cottages/Hope Gap.

Sunrise is around 07:45 but we'll want to get into position in good time, especially if last Sunday's sunrise is anything to go by. The colour started to develop well before the sun actually broke the horizon.

Once the sun has actually risen we'll spend the next 2 1/2 hours to explore Hope Gap & Seaford Head.

High tide coincides with sunrise so with a little bit of luck we should be able to catch a few shots as the tide recedes. 

10:00 - 11:00 Breakfast

the Pavilion Cafe, Seaford.

(Opposite Morrisons, Dane Road, Seaford, BN25 1DJ)
We'll take a break for a full English breakfast at the Pavilion Cafe, but be warned they only accept cash, no credit/debit cards.

11:00 - 14:00 Midday.

Burling Gap & the Belle Tout Lighthouse

From Seaford we'll head over to Burling Gap and take a short walk up to the Belle Tout Lighthouse and a reverse view of the Seven Sisters, taking in the view back towards Seaford.

(Please note I'm not planning on taking a break for lunch so if you think you'll get hungry during the day then you might like to bring a packed lunch & you can dig in when you feel like.)

14:30 - 16:30 Sunset

Seaford Coastguard Cottages/Hope Gap.

We'll return to Seaford head & Hope Gap to explore the area with the light coming from a different direction. Sunset is around 15:57 but hopefully the colour will last well beyond that time, and we may even be able to shoot into the Blue hour.

So that's the basic plan, now we just gotta hope that we get some decent weather & light.
