1066 Country Walk in East Sussex

1066 And All That!

Members of Evesham Rambling Club have just returned from their latest adventure. Heading south, the group tackled the 1066 Country Walk in East Sussex. Club Treasurer, Mike Taylor, delighted the rest of the party when he appeared dressed as a Norman knight, complete with sword and shield. Over a weekend and in fine weather, some 50 kilometres were covered through a mixture of terrains. The route took the walkers from the walls of Pevensey Castle to the Cinque Port of Rye, passing through the historic town of Battle where William, Duke of Normandy, defeated King Harold in what many people know as the Battle of Hastings. Other places of interest visited included Herstmonceux Castle, one of the oldest brick buildings in England, and the town of Winchelsea with its claim to being the smallest town in England. Fifteen members of the club travelled down. Fortunately none of the party were hit by wayward Norman arrows!
