Winchelsea Beach is one of the few remaining comparatively undeveloped parts of the south coast. The whole area is much valued by those who like fresh air – flocks of birds and open and empty spaces.  Search for fossils under the cliffs at Pett Level and explore the rock pools and the petrified forest at low tide.  There is a 4-mile walk following the sea wall eastwards- first stopping at the hides of the bird reserve, next following the River Rother towards Rye and then returning across the field tracks past Camber Castle.
