Gallery of Buildings, Shapes & Materials of Rye
Street Shapes

Rye has a unique collection of buildings which have changed and developed over the centuries.  As new materials were introduced, new houses were built in available spaces, or buildings were adapted, making Rye a fascinating mix of architectural styles. The Slide Show below shows a selection Rye’s unique buildings. Place the mouse over the image for information.

The Gallery to the left provides images and information about the different shapes, materials and colours of Rye.  (If the gallery below overlaps in your browser, click right mouse button and refresh).
