Where's That Then? No 44

This has got to be one of my favourite churchyards. Mainly for the view from it- the half-timbering, orange brick, white painted dormers and the whole thing looking like a backdrop to a Powell & Pressburger film like A Canterbury Tale. Which gives a kind of a clue as to which quarter of the country we're in.

Don't know why I think this, but is it Tenterden?

Is it Rye? I suppose I've not been to enough of these churchyards to know for sure, but it does remind me of there.

Well done Jameso, Rye it is.

"You are now standing in Watchbell Street"...no, you're not, but that's what the elderly guide used to say as we processed around the town in the peeing rain. Love Rye.

Having been there over half-term, recognised this immediately...but too late.

JD.Was your guide the wonderful old spoofer who used to dress up in fake uniform and parade about with a telescope,letting on that he was the latest lookout employed by the local authority to watch for invading French forces as his predecessors had done since the 14th century ?
Said he saw the German battleships Prinz Eugen and Gneisenau break out during WW2 but didn"t bother to tell anyone as he was only employed to watch out for the French!?

On second thoughts it might have been the Scharnhorst.
....Anyway,it was red faces all round up at T'Admiralty at the time.

Jon Dudley said...

The very same, Bucks!
