Episode 5 - The South Downs - The Seven Sisters Walk
 
Following in the footsteps of Sherlock Holmes, this classic English walk sees Julia take in the white cliffs of the Seven Sisters, Beachy Head and the seaside charm of Birling Gap. Her walk ends at the Belle Tout lighthouse, with commanding views across the rolling Sussex Downs and the distinctive white English cliffs.
 
Setting off from the award-winning village of East Dean, Julia explores one of the longest undeveloped coastlines on the south coast - one which is also disappearing at a staggering erosion rate of almost one meter a year. 
 
A classic holiday spot for all the family, Julia discovers the area’s rich social history at Birling Gap, the mystery of Sherlock Holmes’ retirement, and hears how a lighthouse was shifted 17 metres back from the cliff in a three-hour walk that celebrates the natural wonder of this unspoilt classic English coastline.
