Clifftop path to Happisburgh
Clifftop path to Happisburgh
The path starts where Doggetts Lane ends; it leads from Eccles on Sea to the village of Happisburgh, the lighthouse of which can be seen in mid-distance, across a harvested cereal field.

Happisburgh Lighthouse was built in 1790; it is the oldest working light in East Anglia, and the only independently run lighthouse in Great Britain. Two lighthouses were built after 70 sailing ships and 600 men were lost during a severe winter storm in 1789 - Low Light was situated on the cliftop but has since tumbled into the sea, and High Light, located 400 yards inland from it, which still stands. Its tower is 85ft tall and the lantern is 134ft above sea level. The Low Light was discontinued in 1883; the pair formed leading lights marking safe passage around the southern end of the treacherous Haisborough Sands.
