Rye 2

Hi folks,

continuing on with the weekends jaunt into Rye.

This town is perched on top of a hill overlooking Romney Marsh and the sea in East Sussex. It has over 700 years of history and is even traced back to the Roman Times

On top of Rye this is Ypres Tower which guards the town and looks out onto the river Rother and then out to sea.

with its guns pointing out to sea.

Pump street, a very steep cobbled hill leading up to Ypres Tower, the white building was rebuilt in the 1400's so shows how old the town is.

Sue with Wisteria at the top of Pump street, found a flat path for her.

Look closely at the Scrabble tiles in the window, this I thought was very unusual. It says" Theres a fine line between cuddling someone and holding them down so they cant get away"

Finally one of our Winnie at the campsite as the sun started to set after a wonderful day.

Thanks for coming into Rye with us.

Best regards, Mike


  1. Hi Mike, Lovely post....The last shot is fabulous, Winnie in all her glory and that wonderful sky......Ahhhhhh !

  2. Have a great time. Luv Mike. XX

  3. Hi Mike, ever the pedant as I am your note "overlooking Romney Marsh" should read "overlooking Romney Marshes" as the marsh that the Ypres gat looks out on are East Guldeford Levels & Walland Marsh. Romney Marsh proper is north of the Rhee Wall which runs from New Romney to Appledore. :-)

    1. Hi Stephen, "The Official Visitor's Guide to Rye Bay" quotes Romney Marsh so that's what I put. At least you look and comment which makes it all worth while and I thank you for that. See you Sunday I hope.

  4. See what you get Mike when you have a cartographer as a friend on Facebook. At least he will always know which way north is! Hope to see you Sunday :?)
