Just a few hundred years ago the nearby (but now landlocked) ancient towns of Rye and Winchelsea were impoortant sea ports. I have been visiting and exploring the area for many years and came across this picturesque part of the Royal Military canal (which runs for 28 miles through the Marsh). It served as a defensive structure against the threat of a landing and deployment of Napoleon’s troops upon the coast.
