Playden is a village and civil parish in the Rother District of East Sussex, England. The village is located one mile (1.6 km) north-west of Rye. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Pleidena; it is a largely rural parish, having no village centre, and the hamlet of Houghton Green is included in the parish. Playden's main occupation was fishing: the fish were salted in a one-time settlement known as Saltcote, after the fact that it had a fish salting industry based there. Saltcote Street is now all that remains of that industry.
The Norman church is dedicated to St Michael.
In addition, part of the Dungeness, Romney Marsh & Rye SSSI lies within Playden parish
