Old Course of the River Rother
« Reply #1 on: July 22, 2010, 11:36:56 »


From Lewin's "Invasion of Britain of Britain by Julius Caesar " 1862. This map shows the course of the River Rother before a great storm altered it's course.
The map below from Bartholomews 19th Century atlas shows what might have been left of the Rother's original estuary in the 19th Century.
Maybe what is shown as Romney Bay was what was left of Romney Haven following the silting up of the Cinque Port's harbour.
