Falling Sands at Holywell beach


Now in its fifth year, the annual walk around the lighthouse has been arranged for Saturday 11th August 2018. This is a rare opportunity when a low Spring tide occurs at the right time, and during daylight hours to enable people to walk around the lighthouse.

The starting point will be at the kiosk at the foot of the Downs by St. Bede’s school in Eastbourne between 4pm and 5.15pm. Once checked-in, we set off across the Downs to Cow Gap (approx 15-20 minutes), down the steps to the beach and over the rocks, boulders, sand and slippery seaweed to the lighthouse (approx 55 minutes). Apart from the Downland stretch this Challenge is not suitable for running due to the slippery nature of the beach.

On return, everyone will be presented with a certificate to authenticate that they are one of the few people who have undertaken the “Lighthouse Challenge”.
