Winchelsea and Rye: a Christmas Eve jaunt

Golden sunlight in Winchelsea

The New Inn

On Christmas Eve we took a drive from Hawkhurst to Rye, then along to Winchelsea where we had a snack lunch at the very welcoming New Inn before continuing to Hastings and then back to Hawkhurst. 

There is nothing which has been contrived by man, 
by which so much happiness is produced us by a good tavern or inn.
Johnson Mar. 1776
