The Rye Harbour Image Library will contain images and anecdotes about the area. For now there are 341 pictures and 251 comments on the site for you to browse through. The site is designed so that you can add your comments about the pictures to build up the history of the village. You can even send us your photos to be added.
Images can be viewed by YEAR, by ALBUM, by GROUP, or by CONTRIBUTOR, or you can use the simple SEARCH at the top of this page.
When viewing the pictures, PLEASE leave your own comments using the form at the foot of each page. You might know a face, a date or a story about the photo. In this way we hope to build an extensive collection of information, reminiscences and anecdotes about Rye Harbour that is easily accessible to everyone.
You are also able to make your own album of the images here and make this publicly available if you wish.
If you want to add your pictures please send them to us at email@example.com.
We are now starting to include sound files and scanned documents - use the search box for "audio" or "pdf". Video will be coming soon.
