Beachy Head is a chalk headland on the south coast of England, close to the town of Eastbourne in the county of East Sussex. The cliff there is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain, rising to 162 m (530 ft) above sea level.
Since the 1600s Beachy Head has been notorious as a location for people to attempt suicide, estimated at 20 each year. There are regular day and evening patrols by the Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team, and a special telephone box at the cliff edge with a direct line to The Samaritans.
Being in a place where others have taken their lives, only made me feel glad to be alive... I can't begin to explain my emotions sitting next to the exact point where people have simply walked off the edge... and as I sat there, the sun disapeared into the sea leaving me with chills climbing up my spine.
