1) A lone bagpiper was practising on the ridge above Eastbourne, droning to a tiny passing audience. 2) Several people wandered behind the chain fences atop BeachyHead to take a closer look at the bouquets and memorials on the edge, usually until those they were walking with pointed out this wasn't a good idea. 3) In October the National Trust are shutting off access to the beach at Birling Gap and shifting the steps inland, in the hope that the reopened bridge will last another seven years before erosion means they need to shift it again. 4) It's ever so easy to forget you're walking above a sheer drop until you get to the next rise, look back, and go OMG. 5) My unofficial opinion is that it's less knackering to walk the Seven Sisters east→west than west→east, because the slopes aren't quite so violently steep. 6) Folk from 7 to 70 were out completing the Seven Sisters section, although the smallest children weren't always as impressed by the experience as their parents told them they ought to be. 7) Two young gentleman walking the other way looked distraught when I told them there was no phone signal for the next 3 miles. 8) At the mouth of the Cuckmere you can save a 45 minute detour inland if you're willing to wade knee-high through the river. 9) The busiest places on the walk were Birling Gap, where the car park is, and the pebbly beach at Cuckmere Haven. 10) A '99' ice cream cornet from the Martello Kiosk in Seaford costs £2, and is really creamy.
