The Coastguard Cottages at Cuckmere Haven were built shortly after the National Coastguard Service was founded in 1822.
Cuckmere Haven (also known as the Cuckmere Estuary) is an area of flood plains in Sussex, England where the river Cuckmere meets the English Channel between Eastbourne and Seaford.
Prior to this Cuckmere Haven was an important place for smuggling. The cliff face in front of the Cottages has since retreated by more than 30 metres due to Coastal erosion. This combined with the loss of shingle from the beach below the cottages due to wave action in storms has put the Cottages in danger. A fundraising campaign has been created to protect these iconic buildings
