As the Saturday walk was cancelled due to extreme heat conditions being forecast, I've asked a friend of mine - Aaron (Hike leader) to organise something for the group. A bit last minute, but the weather will be much cooler and so worth doing if you're free.

A harbour two miles inland. A town that fell into the sea. Sheep that like to live by the coast, this walk is a fascinating ramble through idyllic English coastal towns.

Rye: Protected content

Some sights: The lookout, Hilder's Cliff St Mary's Church Gun Gardens, next to Ypres Tower Old Rye harbour Camber Castle

The walk's history encompasses some surprising stories, such as how coastal processes – tides, waves, and currents – have created a distinct physical landscape

Our trail bends round to the west to visit the small town of Winchelsea
