Rye Harbour

One of the Cinque Ports (five ports – evidence that we once spoke French in England) that were established in 1155 for commercial and military purposes, Rye’s harbour sits on the River Rother and nowadays, the shore line having moved some distance from the town, a bird sanctuary is being established on the marshland around the estuary.
