Well done to the Central London Outdoor Group who completed the final section of their epic walk from Westminster Abbey to Battle Abbey on Saturday 8th October 2016.

Bob Carpenter led the walk, following 1066 Harold’s Way, in 10 monthly stages from London and finished before the walker’s rush the following weekend.

It was a pity that I could not meet the group but there finish coincided with my Saxon Times talk for the Hastings History Group at the start of their Hastings Week programme.

Bob also asked about the progress of the follow-up books Final Journey, from , and 1066 William’s Way and my reply was that:

The Final Journey should be completed next year with publication the following year – it will be  a good trek across the breadth of Sussex but at the moment, I am trying to get my head around all the public transport links and Southern Rail have not been helping me this year.

1066 William’s Way remains an on-going project.’
