I live in Eastbourne, where Beachy Head is. It is a great place, but yes unfortunately it is a favourite for suicides, with people quite bizarrely travelling large distances to kill themselves there. There is a phone box and Samaritans sign there too, so you can't avoid the reminders of mortality in this beautiful place.

Cheers

oh cool! your lucky to live by the coast, i live in the midlands and it's very boring!
one day i think i'll visit beachy head (NOT to kill myself!!!) cause it does look like a beautiful place! i saw a few images of it on this 'coast' programme and it does look like a very striking landscape
it's a shame that there's an atmosphere of mortality there though
