The Area

Marshes, Rich farmland and smugglers

Smugglers and Dr-Syn Local Attractions The smugglers and Dr Syn area covers the villages between Winchelsea in the west to Hamstreet in the north Hythe in the east and Dungeness in the south.

The area covers the Romney Marsh , Walland and Guldeford Marshes . It has been laid down by the rich alluvial soil deposited by the river Rother. The Rother originally flowed to the sea near Hythe, then after Roman times it changed to flow through to modern day Greatstone and Littlestone , and today it flows to the sea at Rye Harbour .

The area has a stark beauty of its own, and also has unique wildlife , which is visible at the Nature reserves at Rye Harbour and Dungeness .

It has its own unique steam railway the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway which runs along the coast. This narrow gauge miniature railway is a great attraction for visitors.

The coast provides the best sandy beaches in the South East of the country, with shallow water allowing safe access for children.

Take a look through our village pages for more details, and see what you are missing.There is much to be seen throughout the area, and we believe you will have an interesting and enjoyable time visiting it.
