Seven Sisters, East Sussex
With the replacement of the name for the country, Albion became to be used for place names from a toponymic feature involving chalk cliffs, at least in the 19th century. In Southwick, West Sussex, there is a small white cliff (mostly now eroded and grassed over) overlooking the canal section of Shoreham Harbour, and the road that runs along the top of the cliff is known as Albion Street. Albion is a name of public houses, hotels, street names in Sussex, and is even the name of the leading football club.
Albion is used in the poetry of William Blake in its original meaning.
name "Adur" appeared in Michael Drayton's 'Polyolbion'
in the 17th century (1612).
