The Rye Harbour Image Library contains images and anecdotes about the area. There are 474 pictures and 482 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can include sound files and scanned documents - use the search box for "audio" or "pdf".

This web site was started by The Rye Harbour Heritage Group, which was established in 2005, around 200 years after the harbour’s first settlement. In 2022 we started the Rye Harbour History Group that meets monthly as part of the Discover Rye Harbour project which is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
