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 was a wasted exercise. But I hope you enjoy the photos 🙂
