New idea....

I have a new blog - British History - As I See It, Here you will find a new page devoted to the history of the British Isles. I hope to gradually build this up and tie it in with the places I've been to, and documented on here. It will also link to some articles on my other blog The Life Of LittleInsect

More from Sussex

RYE HARBOUR

Rye Harbour lies about 2 miles from the centre of Rye itself, just over the Sussex border with Kent. It is essentially the mouth of the River Rother, which used to enter the sea at Romney, but changed course to Rye. The mouth of the river is enhanced by the rivers Tillingham and Brede, which join it.
There's not a lot, other than the lifeboat station, a cafe, and pub, because most of the land is a designated National Nature Reserve.
Once home to a large fishing fleet, it is now mostly occupied by pleasure craft.
However, it's a pleasant place to park up (decent free car park and loos) and take a stroll in the afternoon sunshine.

How things stand...............

Well now, I've been made redundant, and I actually finished work on the day that my husband had an operation, following a serious accident. So the decision has been taken to retire, so that I can take care of him.
Obviously, this is going to seriously curtail my trekking all over the country, but I am in the fortunate position of being able to afford to keep at least one of my motorcycles, so I'll be treating you to lots of picture taken closer to home!
I've been getting to grips with my new camera, so future pictures should be a lot better quality than heretofore.
I've made a start, with a small update to the Kent page....................
