1066 COUNTRY WALK BOOK
The 1066 Country Walk traces the footsteps of William the Conqueror from his landing at Pevensey in East Sussex, via Battle where his victory over King Harold changed the course of English history, to finish in Rye. It makes a superb 2 - 3 day walking break, taking in such historical gems as Pevensey Castle, Herstmonceux Castle, Battle Abbey, the medieval town of Winchelsea and the unique charms of Rye. The historic walk goes through some absolutely glorious countryside containing picturesque villages, quaint hamlets, numerous Anglo-Saxon and Norman churches, oast houses, windmills, ancient woodland, rivers and stunning valleys.
For the first time the Walk has been broken down into 6 separate stages; in addition there are a further 6 circular walks all incorporating part of the 1066 route - so that's 12 walks in all. The book which is recommended by the 1066 Tourist Board is packed with superb photos, great sketch maps and fascinating snippets of local history. In addition a detailed guide to refreshments, accommodation, public transport, useful websites and FAQs provides walkers with all the essential information they will need when planning their itinerary.
