Seven Sisters

Date: Saturday 11th March

The Seven Sisters are a series of dramatic chalk cliffs on the English Channel in south-east England. They are in the Seven Sisters Country Park, which forms part of the South Downs National Park, the newest national park in the UK! One of these seven cliffs, Beachy Head, is the highest chalk cliff in Britain, with a staggering drop of 162m to the sea. Come to take in the most stunning coastline England has to offer – we will be following part of the 100 mile-long South Downs Way national trail over the cliffs as part of a medium distance circular walk, and aim to pay a visit to the café at Birling Gap before it is claimed by the sea. For more details and pretty pictures see the trip poster.
