GMG Walkers – The Battle of Hastings: 1066 Country
Sunday 12th November, 2017
9:00 am - 6:00 pm
This week we are walking back in history, to the time of the Norman conquest and the 1066 Battle of Hastings, walking from Hastings to Battle, in East Sussex. Walking is always a great day, out exploring in the fresh countryside air, it can be the prefect tonic away from the mental clutter from everyday London life.
In September 1066, William, Duke of Normandy brought his army to Pevensey, Sussex and went on to defeat King Harold in the town of Battle in what many people know as the Battle of Hastings. You can follow in the steps of William the Conqueror taking in historical sites on a generally low level walk through ancient towns and villages, over hillsides and through woodland, and passing oast houses and windmills. The route includes the Normans’ landing point at Pevensey and the battle site, and the castles at Pevensey and Herstmonceux.
Our walks are led by our long-time intrepid member and walker; Frank.
