Family History of Hilder

8th July 2006

Nancy Thompson:

I realize this response is to an old msg. - and you probably have what you asked for - also, I'm not sure if this is the " commemorative plaque at the top of Hilder's Cliff" that you mean. It is on the lookout at the top of the hill, end of the High Street - the belvedere:

"This lookout was given in 1935 by E.F. Benson when Mayor of Rye. He
immortalised this town as "Tilling" in his Mappa and Lucia Novels."

inscription. Thanks >
> Paul Crowther: 20/01/2006 14:14:46 Shelley Jebb: Hilder's Cliff - My grandmother was a Hilder from Rye. The story we were always told was that Hilder's Cliff was named after PC Hilder who saved someone from jumping
off the top of the cliff. Is there any truth in the story? >

Travel Information

20th August 2004

Nancy Thompson:

What is the best way to get to Heathrow Airport from Rye WITHOUT a car? This information is for a friend who is traveling - by train and underground. The fewer changes (with stairs, in particular), the better - slight mobility problems. Thanks, in advance, to anyone who has done this before and knows.
