Rye Pt 1 – Cobbles on Watchbell St
A month or so ago, we visited the charming town of Rye in the Rother district of East Sussex.
Whilst the small town can be busy with tourists, it is possible to lose the crowds and explore some small and beautiful streets. Many set with cobbles such as this image of Watchbell Street.
The areas around St.Mary’s Church and Lamb House deliver some of the best examples of why Rye continues to be so popular. As we understand it, this area is known as ‘The Citadel’ and contains many historical and very well preserved buildings.
The light in this part of Rye can be challenging at certain times of day due to the elevated geography (it is essentially built on a rocky hill) combined with the large areas of flat and marshy ground that heads to the sea 2 miles away.
