Hamsey Island

Hamsey Island © 2011 Mufidah Kassalias

This gorgeous spot is about 20 minutes walk up river from Lewes, on the way to Hamsey. The opposite bank is the small island, which is nestled in the oxbow of the river and home to a handful of houses (including some amazing barn conversions) and an ancient church. St. Peter’s Church is around 1,000 years old, with a lovely interior that lacks the usual decoration, which adds to its charm. You can see the church in this picture (a small sandstone rectangle) towards the left of the frame.

  1. Wow! It’s beautiful and calm. I love the reflection. Green and blue look so good, and nature has plenty of them as together. :)

    • Thanks Katie :-) Although the light was lovely when I took the photograph it changed shortly thereafter, grey rain clouds covered the sky and, after a short shower, a rainbow graced the sky above the river!
