The first mention of the Hythe Ferry was in 1575. The village had a history of shipbuilding dating from the 16th century for merchant shipping and from the 19th century began building wooden ships for the Royal Navy, the first - named The Steady - being built in 1804. In 1793 a French privateer fired shots into the village from the sea, injuring one man. For a time T E Lawrence - Lawrence of Arabia - lodged in the village at Myrtle Cottage.Time taken 5.21 pm BST (British Summer Time).
