Description

Mermaid Street Rye

Original Contemporary Mermaid Street Rye Sussex Landscape Painting

By Artist Diane Griffiths

The picturesque and enchanting Mermaid Street in one of the best preserved medieval towns called Rye in East Sussex; with ancient buildings, cobbled streets and secret passageways. You can see the Mermaid Inn sign prominently at the top of this painting. The famous Mermaid Inn was once the haunt of notorious smugglers; the Hawkhurst Gang. However today all we can see is a pretty street with foliage covering many of the buildings and an invitation to take a stroll.
