  • The Sussex Oast House

    by Mariajoy Written Apr 10, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Oast houses, with their white cowls (the wooden cone at the top) are often associated with the Kent countryside but can be still be seen throughout many parts of neighbouring East Sussex too.

    The oast houses were used to dry hops in the process of beer making throughout the 18th, 19th and first half of the 20th century but with the development of other techniques in the industry, they were no longer required and have been converted into very expensive and much sought after homes.

    More information about these rural buildings can be found at Icons of England

    Fondest memory: It is quite unusual to find "triplet" oasts like these near Bewl Reservoir in East Sussex as they are usually seen as pairs or single standing structures.

    The oldest street in England!

    by Jenniflower Written Jan 20, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Mermaid Street is professed to be the oldest street in England... this runs through Rye.

    It is antiquated and of course, cobbled.

    This is one of the things I absolutely love about this little antiquated town... it is full to the brim of history!
