Crimean Seat Pinhay
This lookout has a tremendous view out over Pinhay Bay and Pinhay Cliffs. the seat was allegedly built during the Crimean war (1853-1856) by the owner of the Pinhay estate to enable a lookout to be kept for Russian ships sailing up the Channel. It is completely constructed from flints including some large brick shaped blocks in the main arched structure. See the view at SY3190 : Pinhay Bay and the Undercliff from The Crimean Seat
