Love this? Tag a fellow Anglophile! Blimey, look at this beautiful shot of Rye, East Sussex by @dikshatravels - how lovely is that glowing lamp and lush cobbles. I featured a shot from here recently but I’m unable to resist a second serving. Reader, I need to move here. Care to join me?
.
I would certainly love to be exploring these labyrinth-like cobbled streets wonderfully steeped in history. But it hasn't always been a peaceful place.... Situated on the south coast of England and where the English Channel is at its narrowest, Rye was often the first port of call for an intruder sailing across from North West Europe. The French regularly attacked or raided Rye and even the Spanish did on occasion. Some attacks were worse than others; in 1377, a French assault resulted in the complete desolation of Rye town by fire. The bells from St Mary’s Church were also stolen on this occasion but the men of Rye and neighbouring settlement Winchelsea sought revenge and set sail for France. This retaliation was fruitful as they returned with the bells and an assortment of other goods that had been stolen on a previous French attack!  From times before the rule of Edward the Confessor, the region along the south coast including Rye, was under the rule of the Abbey of Fecamp in France. This was returned to the English crown in 1247 by Henry III, except for a small region to the north of Rye. This is still known as Rye Foreign despite it being English since the Reformation.

Tag someone who loves cobbles, old wobbly buildings, lashings of grog and mermaids. Especially mermaids. Love this shot of Rye, East Sussex by @moumita.paul_ with that lush golden hour light. For the first time in yonks the clouds and rain have rolled in up t' north, so I'm staring at this beautiful scene to heat my cold toes.

It's been a bonkers few weeks in Britain with the warmth - way above average. If anyone has visited and thought

it's been a bonkers few weeks in britain with the warmth - way above average. if anyone has visited and thought "hey the weather is pretty good in britain!" then you've been one lucky sausage. but with the rain comes this wonderful kind of view - a gorgeous overgrown vista of ancient happiness. the mermaid inn (on the right) is an historical inn located on mermaid street with cellars built in 1156ad. that's just past 5 to 12. can you imagine the tall tales told at this very pub for nearly 1,000 years? the mermaid was also the haunt of the notorious hawkhurst gang of smugglers, who would often celebrate at the inn after a successful smuggling exchange on the nearby shore. so confident was the gang that the excise men would not dare to challenge them that they would lay their loaded pistols in plain view upon the inn tables. it's a real life "secret of monkey island!"

beautiful shot by @moumita.paul_ - have a great evening...time for supper i fancy 🇬🇧 want your photos of britain to be featured? follow us and then add the tag #photosofbritain and tag us in the picture too! 🇬🇧

Tag a friend who loves cobbled streets and gorgeous English cottages! How bloomin' gorgeous is this street in Rye, East Sussex with those lovely daffodils perfectly framing the picture. Love this shot by @lensereflection.. I'm going to keep with the Spring theme forever (well, until Summer). There are rumours that it may snow in Britain at Easter... but I refuse to believe this will happen.

Situated on the south coast of England and where the English Channel is at its narrowest, Rye was often the first port of call for an intruder sailing across from North West Europe. The French regularly raided Rye (naughty!) and even the Spanish did on occasion. Mind you, some attacks were worse than others; in 1377, a French assault resulted in the complete desolation of Rye town by fire. The bells from St Mary’s Church were also stolen on this occasion but the men of Rye and neighbouring settlement Winchelsea sought revenge and set sail for France.

Found these allotments at Winchelsea. They have beautiful views, however I was taken with the old sunflower heads still standing strong. My second 20 x 20inch painting. #winchelsea #winchelseaallotments #allotments #allaprima #paintingoutside #landscapepainting #pleinairpainting #enpleinair #contrejour
