Where I work and live
I have lived in this quaint town all my life: 40 years as of writing. Both my parents initially lived in Brighton before my Father joined the Police and was posted to Seaford. Thus the Family Smith moved to Seaford.
I have done pretty much everything here and am incredibly thankful for being born and raised in Seaford. I never get bored of: the town, the scenery, the sea, the beach, the cliffs, the River Cuckmere, Seaford Head, Friston Forest to name but a few amazing natural resources that Seaford has going for it.
Seaford is sandwiched in the South Downs, and has Brighton 13 miles to the West and Eastbourne 8 miles to the East and is a short train journey to anywhere.
This is where I live, well, not exactly, but 5 minutes walk left of the picture and is a view from my studio at home. The hound is Dylan, my rescued lurcher. This is the view from half way up Seaford Head looking up to the top. In the distance, the beginnings of the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head. Not bad really all things considered.
To be placed so close to nature is simply outstanding. Now that I work from home and have views of the South Downs and the Cliffs from my Studio, makes it even more inspiring. The only problem I have is with motivation, always keen to look outside or be outside.
Seaford gets slated by many people who live here, but they mostly have their eye’s closed to the more gratifying aspects of living in a small coastal town.
