Beachy Head and the is a chalk headland in Southern England, close to the town of Eastbourne. Beachy Head offers fantastic scenic views, it is better to be visited on sunny days when wind is not that strong. Sadly due to the sheer height and easy Access to the cliff, there are about 20 new suicide cases which take place at Beachy Head every year. There are daily patrols led by volunteers along the area (kind of a “Suicide prevention squad”) also there are signs (next to Phone booths) advertising “The Samaritans” number as a 24/7 helpline intended for suicide prevention.
To the west of Beachy Head lies a section of the beach named “The Seven Sisters” due to seven hills on top of the cliff, which are named:
Haven Brow, Short Brow, Rough Brow, Brass Point, Flat Hill, Baily’s Hill and Went Hill Brow
