There's a good car park at Eaat Lane, which is right behind a seawall berm and rock defense, and the cable landing point is about half-way between that and the entrance of the R Deben. I walked along the cliff edge (low cliffs) til I found a decent view within reasonable range (800m from car park). . . It was a fairly remote place!
