Rye Weekend

chilledchimp's birthday present to me was a weekend in Rye. It's a picture postcard village perched on a hill overlooking marshlands in East Sussex and well worth a visit for the windy streets, walks and food.

Here are a few pictures from the weekend.



Looking south from the church spire.


Winchelsea Beach (Win is marsh and chelsea or chesil means beach so this is Marsh Beach Beach)


Spike Milligan's grave in Winchelsea. They wouldn't let him have "I told you I was ill" so he had it put on in Gaelic.


The parched earth, the cracks were 4" deep but it did rain all day today.


Sheeps! They blocked our passage across the bridge, and then ran off

Sheep:( Just big bullies - once you stand up to them they back off.

Fortunately I always carry a small sachet of mint sauce with me for just such an occasion.
