Rye is, in the minds of many, the most beautiful town in England. It could have been lifted straight out of a book of old English postcards. About 70 miles south east of London, it is on the top ten list of places visited by tourists. It is undoubtedly picturesque—standing as it does on a sandstone rock, crowned by the pointed roof of St. Mary’s parish Church, covered by cobbled streets, cobbles of which must be of a similar size and colour, half-timbered houses and contrasting building styles.
The author lovingly guides the reader through these cobbled streets, introducing along the way such features as old churches and inns, venerable bookshops and ancient portals, all the while telling the history of the town, tales populated by great kings, marauding Frenchmen, pirates and foul murderers alike. An essential guide for all who are attracted to this unique town.
(One might ask “why Rye?”, far as it is from the usual Asian territories of Orchid Press. In fact a large portion of the initial stock of Orchid Books shop came from an old Asian library in Rye, and two of Orchid Press’ authors have or had settled in Rye—including the creator of the present work, Jonathan Copeland, also author of Secrets of Bali, and also the late Frederick Lees, author of Annals of the Purple City and The First Lady.)
