As the 2013 field trip to Rye held in conjunction with the Travel Group was over subscribed and such a success, we have decided to arrange a further visit in October of this year. Those who attended the previous field trip are invited to bring prints taken on that occasion to show at the beginning of the visit. As the number of participants will be limited to 30 again, early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.

We will meet at Fletcher's House in Lion Street (see http://www.fletchershouse.co.uk/) for refreshments at 10:00 am. Liz Rhodes, Chairman of the Travel Group, will give a brief introduction to travel photography followed by a presentation of prints by Chelin Miller LRPS, who is an accomplished travel photographer, blogger and the Editor of Travel Log, the quarterly news letter of the Travel Group. This will be followed by a look at prints taken on the 2013 trip. Our aim would be to set off at 11:00 am in small groups to explore the photographic opportunities offered by the town and the harbour.

Rye is steeped in history going back to medieval times, when it was a major member of the Cinque Ports Confederation at the head of an embayment of the English Channel. This influence may still be seen in the architecture and remains of the town and Rye Harbour is now classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. More information on the history of Rye may be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rye,_East_Sussex.

We will make our own arrangements for luncheon, but we will re-convene at 4:00 pm in a private room at Fletcher's House for afternoon tea (included in the price of the field trip) where we will discuss the day's events and consider future joint meetings between the Travel Group and the South East Region.

Those wishing to attend are asked to register and pay through the RPS website. In the event that there are any problems with this process, please contact the Regional Organiser.
