February 28 next year marks the centenary of the death of American writer Henry James and this will be a year in which James’s legacy will be internationally celebrated.
Henry James moved into Lamb House in Rye (now owned by the National Trust) in June 1898 and remained attached to the house and his “russet Arcadia” until his death almost 18 years later.
The National Trust would be interested in any local memories or stories which have been passed down relating to James and his connection to Rye.
