The route[edit]

The route commemorates 1066, the year of the Battle of Hastings, and seeks to link the places and the people of that important year. It runs through East Sussex from Pevensey where William of Normandy gathered his invading army of Normans and prepared to meet King Harold to Rye, East Sussex, passing through Battle, East Sussex.

The walk is mainly low level and passes through rolling countryside beside oast houses, windmills and parts of the South Downs.
