The River Rother (originally named “Limen”), [ [http://www.kent.ac.uk/secl/classics/Temporary/Lyminge.htm Both the river and the settlement of Lympne, which stood on the old course of the river, are connected by this Celtic name] ] at 35 miles (56km), is a rivers flowing through both East Sussex and Kent, England. Its source is near Rotherfield (East Sussex), and its mouth is on Rye Bay, part of the English Channel.

The river’s section below Bodiam Castle is navigable; following that are the "Rother Levels" (where the sea once penetrated); the Isle of Oxney lies to the north; and near Rye the Walland Marsh is at its eastern bank. The river is navigable by canoes and kayaks as far up as Etchingham. The River Rother passes by or near the villages of Etchingham, Robertsbridge, Bodiam, Northiam, and Wittersham.
