Description

Engraving by A Ashley for the British Gazetteer after an original drawing by J F Burrell. When the South Eastern Railway (SER) was given Parliamentary authority to build the line from Hastings to Ashford, a condition was imposed that required the construction of a swing bridge at Rye in order to maintain the navigability of the River Rother. The bridge was replaced by a fixed bridge in 1903.
