Brighton Marina

Brighton Marina is entirely man-made, from the harbour arms to the in-filling of the sea to provide land on which to build blocks of flats, shops (Including a supermarket), a health club, a casino,a bowling alley and a hotel - not to mention a multi-storey car park (from which this picture was taken). When it was built it was claimed to be the largest man-made marina in Europe, although that title was later taken by Sovereign Harbour just along the coast at Eastbourne. The picture shows the main entrance to the marina with the chalk cliffs behind. On the top of the cliffs centre picture is Roedean, possibly the most expensive girls' boarding school in the country.
