BEACHY HEAD. ) Our loftiest South Coast cliff line is, of course, Beachy Head. Beachy Head, which forms the east end:of the South Downs, consists of perpendicular chalk cliffs that are no less than 575ft. high. There were frequent and fearful shipwrecks here in the old days, before the erection, in 1831, of the Belle Toute Lighthouse, which is two-and-a-half miles to the west, and, from an elevation of 285ft., flings out a light across the sea by night that can be seen over twenty miles away. The front and sea skirts of the precipitous cliff are pierced with caverns, which are the resort of multitudes of sea fowl. It was off this famous headland, on June 30th, 1690, that the French fleet of eighty-two sail, under the Count de Tourville, defeated the combined British and Dutch fleets of fifty-Six sail under Lord Tor- rington. In clear weather the view from Beachy Head extends to Hastings, the Isle of Wight, and France.
