Hastings cliffs

They are not so popular as located just 20 miles away Seven Sisters and Beachy Head, but definitely worth seeing. Climbing 100m above the sea, sandy-coloured, covered with intense vegetation, call to mind pictures from tropical forests. Different flora, different geological structure, and less people:) More information: www.discoveringfossils.co.uk/hastings_fossils.htm" rel="nofollow www.discoveringfossils.co.uk/hastings_fossils.htm www.hastings.gov.uk/community_living/places_spaces_facilities/allotments_parks_beaches/countryside/hcp_nature/" rel="nofollow www.hastings.gov.uk/community_living/places_spaces_facili...

Gathering

Sunny late afternoon in Hastings. Low water is revealing the bottom of the sea and uncovering little sea monsters making them vulnerable for being gathered by people;) Just 1.5hrs from Charing Cross and 2hrs from London Victoria by train. www.walkingclub.org.uk/book_3/walk_169/index.shtml" rel="nofollow www.walkingclub.org.uk/book_3/walk_169/index.shtml

How to use GPS data

The Android and iPhone apps, and GPS devices like the Satmap 20, work while you are out walking as the maps are stored on your device, i.e. they don't use 'data', and you don't need a signal (in practise, even with 4G, you will rarely have a signal while out walking.)
