The East Sussex town of Rye has deep historical roots and its ancient streets hide many secrets. Author Terry Philpott takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the town's past, unearthing tales of intrigue and grisly goings-on as he reveals the murkier side of Rye's heritage. Along the way we are introduced to the great, the good and the bad, and the famous and infamous characters who have all played a part in its lore and legends. From tales of notorious smuggling gangs in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to the local fishing fleet's vital role in rescuing the British Expeditionary Force at Dunkirk, Secret Rye delves beneath the surface of this old trading port, revealing a lesser-known and less savoury past that even most local people don't know.
