Handmade Roof Tiles in East Sussex

Handmade Roof Tiles

Handmade roof tiles often have a unique pitted surface that will not be present on machine made tiles. Sure, the machine can have these surface pits added to mimic the handmade look, but they never look truly authentic as the pitting will be uniform and when laid out together, they will all look identical.

Handmade roof tiles from Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd are ideal where the benefits of a new clay tile is required but with the genuine look of an aged and weathered appearance.

The pitted finish has been designed to catch lichen to encourage the weathering process and to blend into the natural surroundings of the property. This is particularly evident when our handmade roof tiles are used in more rural settings.

Our handmade roof tiles really do have character and are perfectly suited for use on projects such as barn conversions or mixing in with existing tiles.

Our handmade roof tiles exhibit wonderful tones with subtle variation within each of our ranges. They can be used for new developments, just as well as the more traditional country properties.

A little information about East Sussex

The Seven Sisters in East Sussex

The Seven Sisters are a series of chalk cliffs by the English Channel in East Sussex. They form part of the South Downs, a major hang gliding mecca in East Sussex. They sit between the towns of Seaford and Eastbourne. They are within the South Downs National Park which is bounded by the coast, the Cuckmere and the A259 road. They are the remnants of dry valleys in the chalk South Downs, which are gradually being eroded by the sea.

Just east of the last peak is Birling Gap. Beyond, on the top of the next hill, is Belle Tout Lighthouse and beyond that Beachy Head. A lighthouse in the sea marks the latter headland.

The South Downs Way runs along the edge of the cliffs, taking a very undulating course. Many landmarks around the area are named after the cliffs, including the Seven Sisters Sheep Centre.

East Sussex in film

The Seven Sisters cliffs are occasionally used in filmmaking and television production as a stand in for the more famous White Cliffs of Dover, since they are relatively free of modern development and are also allowed to erode naturally. As a result, the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head remain a bright white colour, whereas the White Cliffs of Dover are protected due to the important port and are therefore increasingly covered in vegetation and are greening as a result. They are also featured at the beginning of the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and at the end of the film Atonement where Robbie and Cecilia always wanted to live.

Much of the 2015 feature film Mr. Holmes was filmed around the Seven Sisters in this beautiful part of East Sussex.

The Seven Sisters in east Sussex is a favourite filming spot as the white cliffs are particularly stunning and evoke a feeling of the film subjects arrival or departure from the iconic East Sussex shores.

The 2019 film Hope Gap, starring Bill Nighy and Annette Bening was against the backdrop of Seaford Head. The film is named after the distinctive area of chalk cliff between Seaford and Cuckmere Haven. In 2020, Jessica Swales feature film debut Summerland premiered, set in and shot around the Seaford area, featuring numerous views of the Seven Sisters.

An east facing photo of the Seven Sisters is included as one of the default landscape wallpapers packaged with Microsoft Windows.
