Visit Robertsbridge and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Robertsbridge, East Sussex. This little town lies in well-wooded country near the River Rother. It contains a number of old houses, and some distance down the valley is Abbey Farm, built from the ruins of a nearby medieval Cistercian abbey. In the neighbouring village of Salehurst the Parish Church of St Mary's dates mostly from the 13th century and is in the Decorated style; the font is 12th-century.
An important local industry is the making of cricket bats by the firm of Gray-Nicolls, who have been in the business since 1876. A cricketing ancestor started making bats for friends and the demand became so heavy that he turned his hobby into a business. One of his early clients was W. G. Grace, who scored more than 2,000 runs with the first bat. A photograph of Grace and a letter of congratulation concerning the bat are displayed on a wall of the factory.
