A Walk around Winchelsea
This Walk around Winchelsea is an opportunity to imagine a life in a town whose Grand Design has little changed in over 700 years.
There are three medieval gates that guard the approaches, the old Court Hall that once acted as the gaol and the seat of the Mayor’s power, and a great church that promised so much, its grandeur and wealth reflects the affluence and influence of the town in the 14th century.
Despite its difficult past, it has survived to capture a unique vision of King Edward I’s dream of a hilltop town. It is a walk into history.
