"Within a decade the headland coastguard cottages will be lost to the sea as a result of erosion."

"Then there are the tank traps and pill boxes and going farther back in history, to Napoleon the Third's time, the canal through the valley was constructed to get barges up to Alfriston and military personnel up to the Cuckmere Haven garrison.

"Going even farther back you have the coastguard cottages built just after the turn of the 18th Century to guard against smuggling."
