9781848684737: Rye Through Time

Rye is a fascinating Sussex port and market town built on a former island hilltop. Lying at the convergence of three tidal rivers and surrounded by the flat land of the Romney marshes, it has enjoyed a rich history since its foundation in the eleventh century. The many strands in its story include defence, trade, fishing, shipbuilding, agriculture, retail and market services for a wide rural hinterland. More recently, the town has found success as a centre for tourism, leisure and the arts.Using contrasting images including photographs, drawings and prints, Alan Dickinson aims to explore how the passage of time has affected the town. The reader is invited to look at the rural setting of the town, as well as its monuments, streets, buildings, rivers and quays, and may be surprised by how little has changed in the local scene. Enthusiasts for boats, land transport and costume will find much of interest in Rye Through Time.
