Member's Comments on Winchelsea...

  • Chris Pearson says...
  • Summit lies on the picturesque main street next to a tree where a sign reads Wesley gave his last sermon (the chapel was too small for the large crowd). The town stands on the site of a medieval town, which was lost to the sea. The town had a tidal harbour on the River Brede and was greatly involved in the wine trade and the extensive wine cellars under the town may still be visited on open days. Its prosperity was gradually sapped by the silting of its harbour, shifts in the pattern of trade and disasters such as war and plague. By the middle of the 16th century, it had been left high and dry. In 2012 the village had the slowest broadband speed in the United Kingdom. Spike Milligan is buried here with the words "I told you I was ill" on his headstone but the diocese refused to allow this epitaph.and so a compromise was reached with it written in Irish.
