Belle Tout well shaft Update

Written by Ian Blair

 

By way of an update on the earlier post related to the Belle Tout well shaft on the Sussex coast, which we aired on FB in August 2015.

Coincidentally, the area in question around Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters, was one that had already been selected by CITiZAN (the Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network) team, who in the interim have been undertaking a good deal of survey work along this particular stretch of coastline. Amazingly, the CITiZAN team have managed to relocate the base of the shaft in the foreshore, but you can see from its now incredibly shallow depth, that it was a close-run thing!
