20km Hike: Hastings to Rye - 20/10/2007

    Newer Older

    Another great hike, this time a great walk from Hastings to Rye on the South East of England.

    Hastings is a picturesque town and local government district in South East England, in the county of East Sussex. It is best known for its connection with the Battle of Hastings 1066, which actually occurred north of the town at Senlac Hill; the battle is commemorated today in the town of Battle. Hastings was one of the Cinque Ports, but its significance as a port declined after the 19th Century and its main industry became fishing. It still has the largest beach-based fishing fleet in England. From a fishing port it became a watering place and finally a seaside resort in Victorian times.

    Rye is a small hill top town and civil parish in East Sussex, England, on the River Rother, and at the western edge of the Walland Marsh, part of the Romney Marshes.

    The town's economy relies heavily on tourism because of its historical importance.

    Notable buildings in the town include St Mary's parish church, the Ypres Tower (pronounced "wipers"), Lamb House and many of the houses on Mermaid Street, Watchbell Street, and Church Square.
