Abandoned Barns, Bridge of Stone and Blue Horizon

"Abandoned Barns" :- Old farm buildings sit in a valley that's now part of a nature reserve on the outskirts of Brighton in Sussex, England. You can walk around this area for hours without seeing anyone so it's quite eerie when the old, run down barns come into view. This is part of Castle Hill Nature Reserve which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), a Biogenetic Reserve by the Council of Europe and is also a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) under the European Habitats Directive.

"Bridge of Stone" :- I have no idea what the name of this bridge is. I have located the names of every other bridge in and around Shoreham (on the south coast of England) but have found no information regarding this onwe at all. I don't even know when it was built but judging by its design and architecture I will hazard a guess that it was constructed sometime in the late 1800's. It's on the main A259 road and sits between a roundabout and Norfolk Bridge.

"Blue Horizon" :- This is a view that I get to see on a weekly basis. Admittedly the sun's not always out and it can be sometimes windy and miserable but it's still the view. These are the cliffs that are just by Ovingdean Gap which is a couple of miles East of the City of Brighton. I live just a short walk away from these cliffs and often find myself down here taking in the view and staring out to sea. When you look at this image it's hard to believe that there's a sprawling, bustling famous seaside resort and city just out of shot to the right.
