My photo postcard from Eastbourne in Sussex

Eastbourne on the “Sussex Sunshine Coast” is pleasant for a promenade even at the beginning of January. But still mounds of shingle burying the stairs to the beaches, despite protection from the west by Beachy Head and the chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters. Eastbourne’s elegant Victorian pier is still open whilst being restored after last year’s fire. But very poor effort on Christmas decorations in the shopping streets.
