Mermaid Street Rye.

Mermaid Street ,Rye, East Sussex 
A recent trip took me to the old Cinque port of  Rye . A lovely old town  renowned for it's smuggling history.
You can't visit without taking a walk down Mermaid Street . A steep cobbled lane lined with enchanting and picturesque old buildings including the well known Mermaid Inn.
Mermaid Street 

  The houses have wonderful names like
 "The House With Two Front Doors"
   and
"The House Opposite"
 It's hard to imagine that it was once a poor and disreputable area!
A rich assortment of crooked old architecture adorned with flowers and foliage.
I do like a painting challenge!!!    :)
