Winchelsea – Dog Walking – Mary Stanford Lifeboat House

Winchelsea – Dog Walking, what an amazing place. Winchelsea is a small town in the non-metropolitan county of East Sussex. The village is on a small hill. WInchelsea beach is around a mile away.

On this blog we are going to go to the Mary Stanford Lifeboat house. An easy walk of around half an hour. It is wheelchair accessible and fine for bike and prams.

We often walk the dogs along the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve to the Mary Stanford Lifeboat House.

Mary Stanford Lifeboat house

What a tragic story, on the 15th November 1928 at 6.45 a.m. the Mary Stanford Lifeboat was launched with a crew of 17 into a south -westerly gale. The winds were in excess of 80 miles per hour – not one of these amazing brave Rye Harbour men ever returned.


This is a amazing place to walk the dogs. We park at Dog Hill Road and walk down the path life boat house.
The small road is tarmac. If its a beautiful day and the tide is out we cross the pebble beach onto the sand banks. This is a lovely walk as the sea is very shallow, there are many rock pools and miles of golden sand to stroll down.
