Rye to Hastings 13 miles
A brisk walk through a wonderful section of the Kent Coast, following parts of the Saxon Shore Way. Thus- described by walk leader Margaret Wasdell.
An early start from Charing Cross we took the Hastings train then changed to a local network train to Rye. We walked through the picturesque village of Rye, and down hill across a small bridge over a river at Brede; then up a steep hill , catching a glimpse of the sea as we walked towards an ancient village called Winchelsea.
There we had a picnic under the sun in the churchyard of St Thomas the Martyr; incidentally Spike Milligan was buried there.
Up and down and Up, and—Down, and ….
It was an invigorating walk and well worth the effort to get there.
It’s worth joining up with a walking group as they have experienced guides which without I would have given up. I’m not much of a map reader, but eventually as I get out more I will start to learn
Until next time.
Enjoy the views
