Robertsbridge and making compensation claims
Robertsbridge is a village within the civil parish of Salehurst and Robertsbridge, found inside the bounds of the ceremonial county of East Sussex, in the south of England.
The village is located approximately 10 miles (16 km) north of Hastings and 13 miles (21 km) south-east of Tunbridge Wells and is also along the course of the River Rother.
The history of the village of Robertsbridge
It is believed that the establishment of the settlement, and its subsequent name of Robertsbridge, dates back to 1176 when a Cistercian abbey was established on the site by the abbot, Robert de St Martin. The first written reference to the name of Robertsbridge comes approximately 20 years after this, when a charter was granted to the town by Richard I in 1198, for the holding of a weekly market.
In spite of the dissolution of Robertsbridge’s abbey in 1538, it was in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries that the village really began to thrive and there are in fact a number of historic buildings from this period still in evidence in Robertsbridge today.
Most notably amongst these is The Seven Stars Inn on the historic High Street, which is a popular and well visited public house in the village.
Robertsbridge also has a historical claim to fame in the realm of music, in that it is the home to the Robertsbridge Codex of 1360, which is the earliest surviving example of music written specifically for keyboard.
