Geography

Rother District covers two areas of relief: to the south, a section of the High Wealdmarker; and to the north the lower land, named the Rother Levels, across which flow the River Rother, which rises on the Weald and flows easterly towards Rye Bay, and its tributaries. For much of the course of the main river it constitutes the boundary between East Sussex and Kentmarker, and is given the alternative title of the ’’Kent Ditch’’. Tributaries of the river include the Rivers Dudwell, Tillinghammarker and Bredemarker.

The District reaches the coast in the vicinity of Bexhill, and on the shores of Rye Bay.

There are several main roads crossing the District. The major trunk road is the A21marker, London to Hastings road; it is joined by the A28 road from Ashford road near Hastings; which in turn is crossed by the A268 Hawkhurstmarker to Rye road. There is also the A259 coastal route

The Hastings Line and the Marshlink Line are the two railway lines in the District; The Kent and East Sussex Railway tourist line terminates at Bodiam.

Long-distance footpaths include the Sussex Border Path; and the Saxon Shore Way, which links with the 1066 Country Walk.
