Cat from Rye {England}

Contrary to what you might expect, Rye in East Sussex, England, is not known for its quaint buildings, but for its... ghosts. Several inns, such as The Mermaid Inn and The Union Inn, claim to have their own supernatural visitors. In Watchbell Street, a boy wrapped in a white sheet supposedly makes a regular appearance. In Mermaid Street it's a girl dressed in blue. And in Turkey Cock Lane there's the ghost of a monk who was bricked up alive. Even author Henry James, who used to live in Rye, said that the spirit of an old lady helped him with his writing. No wonder Rye is called the most haunted town in England. The Rye Heritage Centre runs regular ghost tours and walks.

  9. OK, I'm not even looking at the cat in these I have to admit! I'm going to try and visit this place! I love haunted things. Have to try and convince my boyfriend it's because it has beautiful architecture ;)

  10. Les maisons et les rues en pierre sont pourtant très belles. J'aime beaucoup. Ca donne envie d'y aller faire un tour.
    Le chat semble avoir abusé du soleil. Un beau noir tirant sur le roux.
    J'ai toujours été fascinée par l'idée de fantomes ....
    Bonne soirée

  26. I was about to say how much I love the buildings, but now I know there are ghosts in them maybe not!

  33. If the buildings are haunted, then it's appropriate there are black cats around.

  34. Rye sounds like a fun place to visit. Looks like the cats are friendly. I hope the ghosts are, too!

  44. I knew there was a reason I refused to visit east sussex whenever i am in sussex lol, very spooky

  45. I'd heard of Rye but didn't know it was full of ghosts - it looks a pretty place with the old timber framed buildings - sometime I must get myself organised and go and visit it - it's only about a couple of hours drive away from here. The buildings make me think of Stratford upon Avon where Shakespeare's plays are performed in the theatre there.

  46. They bricked someone up alive? Gosh... Peeps can be the meanest and cruellest species of all. On the other paw, those buildings are super quaint. Makes one wanna teleport on over, for sure.

    Purrs,
