This outstanding view is depicted in many paintings and photographs and enjoyed by the thousands who visit each year.
The Artist - Andrew Dandridge, is a successful landscape and seascape artist with sales in excess of 3,500 original watercolour paintings, a burgeoning greetings card business and a growing demand for his signed limited edition prints.
Yet despite this success he remains modest and unassuming, clearly driven by his passion for both the English countryside and all things marine, and a genuine desire to share his achievements with the growing number of his followers.
It is this sense of sharing that motivates him and acts as a catalyst for him to increase the occasions where he is able to exhibit his work and talk face to face with the public.

A frail, only child, Eric Slater was born in 1896 and spent his early years with his parents, grandmother and two servants in a large house in Hampstead, London. His father, Thomas, a successful silversmith and partner in the firm Aldwinkle and Slater, died when Eric was eight.
Eric moved with his mother and grandmother to Sussex where he studied at The Hastings School of Art. Eric's prints, cards and book (Slater's Sussex) are available at
"Cuckmere Haven inspires painters, printmakers and photographers. Easels, sketchbooks and cameras are in constant use. Both amateurs and professionals have tried to capture its spirit in different seasons and lights." ...James Trollope
"Cuckmere Haven with the Coastguard Cottages is one of the most iconic views in Britain. In fact it goes further than that. I learnt recently that the classic view is the No 1 screen saver in Japan! It is known the world over and has been used in numerous films and TV programs. Why is that?"...
'I am a Sussex-based artist designer, and my artwork is a celebration of the great British landscape.
This iconic view from Seaford Head, looking out across the coastguards' cottages towards Cuckmere Haven and the Seven Sisters cliffs, is one of my favourite local Sussex landmark sites - this is a special place where I love to walk, sketch and paint. With my work, it is my aim to create classic, elegant images with a real sense of place'.

Already the cottages in my drawing are threatening to collapse into the sea; this recent spate of coastal erosion has been caused by our increasingly stormy winters.
Recently I was approached by a charity called ‘Cuckmere Haven SOS’, who want to raise money to attempt to save the cliffs and cottages (and this historic view) from collapsing. In their campaign they explain: “The funds, expertise and effort required to secure this historic site is not great but because of The Government’s policy of “Coastal Retreat” will allow nature and the process of gradual or even sudden erosion to take its course, it has now become greater than local pockets can afford”
Although I support this campaign and will feel terribly sad to see this view literally crumble into the sea, I feel a strong sense of inevitability in Nature’s power; we can challenge her only for so long. Flo's work is available to buy online at www.flosnook.co.uk

The coastguard cottages at Cuckmere Haven seem to lend a greater sense of scale to the vast landscape of the estuary beach and cliffs. They also occupy an important part in our coastal history.
The view of the cottages looking east with the seven sisters in the background is one of the finest in England.
