Local Movies are Coming to the Rye’s Own Website

Local Movies, many shot in Rye and District in the 1960’s will be coming to this website shortly.

Literally hundreds of local people are featured in the films, which cover many aspects of Rye life from Bonfire Nights to Rye Sports. There are parades past the Town Hall, local soccer teams in action, cycling time trials on the roads of kent, dramatic snow shots from the hard winter of 1963 when the sea froze and many more outstanding events.

These films were mainly shot on Standard 8 film which has been enhanced to an acceptable quality.

These are stills from one of the first films that will be featured. Fishing from Rye includes many local fishermen and their boats that were fishing out of Rye in the sixties.
