It was built by Lewes District Council in the 1980s and has three access points from the cliff-top which are:-
|At the west end, a ramp from Malines Av.|
|The Bastion Steps at Steyning Ave., 0.7 miles further east|
|The easterly steps leading to Cliff Ave., a further mile east.|
|Looking towards Brighton at the west end|
|Looking across Friars Bay at the east end|
Between the Saltdean east end and Peacehaven undercliff is a gap of about 1.2 miles of unprotected cliff, and a similar gap exists between the east end of the Peacehaven undercliff and Newhaven West Beach. Presumably these sections will need coastal defence works eventually and it might then be possible to walk the 7.5 miles from Brighton to Newhaven along a continuous undercliff path.
|Some luxurious vegetation.|
