Flatish top, the HB HP has probably gone down the cliff like the 2 trig pillars have; unable to decide exactly where it currently is, but will probably need relocating after the next winter storm anyway.jonglew17/04/2018

A purple mottled sunset as the winter sun sank over the horizon. A nice grassy walk up the golf course (new clubhouse being built costing £1.7M). Trig missing - splash? The chalk cliffs reveal marine fossils from a shallow warm sea 200m higher than present from 89-86 million years ago when Britain was around 40°N (i.e latitude of Med today) During the most recent ice age, freezing winds deposited the crumbly sandy layer (loess) seen at the cliff top. http://www.discoveringfossils.co.uk/seaford_fossils.htmChris Pearson26/01/2015
