Birling Gap.

What are the origins of the word Birling? Which came first: the script for ‘An Inspector Calls’ or the South Downs and the Seven Sisters… Well, obviously!

So, what does Birling mean? Wiktionary suggests ‘a barge’ or ‘a ship’s galley’.

Nope! I can’t make the link between the origins of the word Birling and the beautiful white cliffs of the Seven Sisters… Nor can I make the link between the origins of the word and the pompous character of Arthur Birling from the play.

Well, that wasΒ a wasted exercise. But I hope you enjoy the photos πŸ™‚
