Meopham Historical Society Outing (24/06/2009) Rye and Winchelsea
Page 2: Winchelsea
After the lunch break we made our way to the nearby town of Winchelsea. There our guide, Peter, met us. He was very knowledgeable and after a brief introduction took us on a guided tour of 3 of the famous cellars, of which there are 59 in total. They were used for storing wine that had been imported from France. The stay in Winchelsea ended with a cream tea in a local inn. Altogether a very enjoyable day.
