Lucknow Place is now a car park in Fishmarket Road. The cottages were either lost during the war or were knocked down. Clifton Place probably suffered the same fate!

As St Michael's is a place of worship it is available for all acts of worship. Whether you can be married there depends on whether you live in the parish or not. See this website for info about being married in church: http://www.cofe.anglican.org/lifeevents/weddings. If you do live in the parish why not turn up at a service one Sunday morning and have a chat with the Vicar?

Brian Hatter: Hill House Hospital, formerly the Rye Union Workhouse was built in 1844 on Rye Hill and is different from the nearby Rye, Winchelsea and District Memorial Hospital (now Rye Memorial Care Centre)built by private donation in 1922.
In 1929 the workhouse was renamed 'The Retreat' and run as a Public Assistance Institution by the County Council. That has now closed and the buildings have been converted into homes. There is still on the site a small home for disabled people I believe. I should imagine that any records will now be in the County Records Office at Lewes. Hope this helps.

Paul Kennedy: Yes, the Lifeboat Memorial Service is on 19th November. And it will be added to the Town Diary in due course - it is still 2 months away!

Andy Smith: I think that possibly the Queens Head in Landgate do gluten free food. I seem to recall something on the menu last time I ate there.

John Pelham: I have asked Jo Kirkham, local historian, about the naming of Hilders Cliff. This is what she says:
'There was an important family called Hilder in Rye - in the records from 1813 to c.1900. One of these, I believe , paid for improving the road and putting up the railing's and lights - (originally gas) - on Hilder's Cliff.'
Hope this helps!

David Crittenden: Try the County Records Office at The Maltings in Lewes.

Ashley Rose: There is a launderette in the Rope Walk Arcade in Rye, next to the Market carpark. At least I hope it's still there, if anyone knows different they had better say so. It's only open during the day though.

Rachel Jones: There was one person who lived in Rye killed in the 1990 Gulf War. He is commemorated on the War Memorial in the churchyard.
