History Walks, Talks and Books by David Clarke – more than just footsteps on a path. Inspiring, exploring and discovering unique walks with a sense of history. Long walks and short walks, there’s something for everyone.
This is a walk that starts at Rock a Nore, at the easterly extreme of Hastings, and finishes at the De La Warr – that grand art deco pavilion on Bexhill’s promenade.
It is an historic route with much to occupy the imagination.
It is a hop on and hop off kind of walk, do as little or as much as you want but it is not a race. Take your time and enjoy the history with plenty of opportunity to stop for tea, coffee and, if warm enough, ice creams with a Stagecoach bus to take you home.

A lighthearted review of all the events of that tumultuous year as reported by The Saxon Times.
The year began with the death of King Edward the Confessor and ended with the coronation of King William and a New Year’s Eve that saw the new King ‘hiding’ in a nunnery in Barking. It was a year that shaped the future of England.
