Rye is a small town in East Sussex and is one of the ancient Cinque Ports. The Cinque Ports date back to at least the twelfth century and is existed as a confederation to protect fishing rights and to act as a defence against attack from overseas.

Rye today is some distance from the sea, but retains evidence of its past down by the river, where the fishermen's warehouses still stand. It is a beautiful and quaint village with meandering streets, and ancient buildings such as the 800 year old church and the Ypres Tower. It's also a good base for exploring other parts of the region.

    Oh, so many places to visit right there in England! I can't wait to return, and maybe I'll make a stop in Rye next time. :-))
