Approaching Telscombe Cliffs
Approaching Telscombe Cliffs
Looking across South Coast Road and Telscombe Tye towards Telscombe Cliffs. The latter was actually the first place to be developed along the cliffs by the Cavendish Land Company around 1900 though this attempt initially failed. However, with Charles Neville's development of Peacehaven and Saltdean the older Telscombe Cliffs was revitalised and grew with the former. The bungalows in view are on Gorham Way named after the Lord of Manor at Telscombe, Ambrose Gorham, who having battled to prevent Neville getting hold of his land, willed the Tye to Brighton Borough Council, despite the fact Telscombe had never been a part of Brighton, on condition it remained in perpetual use as an area of common land and thus creating a buffer between the outlying eastern edge of Brighton and the towns to the east.
