Back again after a smashing weekend away in Appledore which is situated on the marshes not too far from Rye in East Sussex. We stayed on a site just outside the small town so we could walk in and see its' attractions, there is a nice pub, an interesting church and houses dating back as far as the 17th century. We picked up a leaflet published by the Appledore Local History Society which gives the low down on many of the old properties, a fascinating read.
First picture shows the entrance to the site with the Royal Military Canal behind the reeds.
The camp site is in a secluded area behind trees which hide it from the road. The only noise we had over the weekend were two or three motorbikes cruising around the bend.
Once set up we strolled into the town picking out the blossom as we went on this fantastic mid March weekend.
Daffodils were everywhere.
Even these wonderful Magnolia coming into bloom from a huge tree in a garden.
Houses also added to the display.
Walking back to the site over the canal.
Back on site more vans were arriving and everyone was getting into the Spring spirit. I hasten to add that I did not have a try of this, it looked too dangerous for someone of a nervous disposition.
Light up and lets have a Barbie, Chris in the foreground showing that there is no smoke without fire.
In the town we explored the church, more on that later.
