What a weekend it will be, celebrating 950 years since the Battle of Hastings, 14th October 1066.
Battle re-enactments, civic ceremonies and a full programme of events organised by Concorde 1066 and English Heritage and the Normans have been invited too.
I wonder if they will be asked to camp on Telham Hill?
But the main event must be the opportunity to walk the final few miles of 1066 Harold’s Way from Bodiam Castle to Battle Abbey inspired by King Harold’s epic march from York.
In fact it seems that so many of you are ‘doing’ the walk that weekend that the footpaths are likely to be well trod, The Queens Head at Sedlescombe busy and with the Abbey Hotel normally packed with re-enactors, try The Kings Head on Mount Street or The Chequers at Lower Lake for a better pint to celebrate your march to Battle.
Enjoy the Walk
