PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Basically the national rail service is reasonably good for getting you to the starting point of the 1066 Country Walk at Pevensey; the mid point at Battle; and at the finishing point in Rye. However in between you will have to rely on local buses if you want to vary/shorten your route, and please note that in many cases they either run infrequently or not all on Sundays and Bank Holidays!

Pevensey & Westham rail station is 10 mins walk from Pevensey Castle, the start of the 1066 Country Walk. This is between Eastbourne and Bexhill on the Southern Rail service from Brighton to Ashford International. It is also accessible from London Victoria via Lewes; and from London Charing Cross/Waterloo/London Bridge to Hastings, changing at St. Leonards Warrior Square. Once you've completed the 1066 Country Walk at Rye, then there is a regular rail service back to Hastings which takes 20 mins.

Check www.nationalrail.co.uk for rail journey planner details. It also worth checking Southern Rail's Marshlink service from Hastings to Rye, as it does have some stops en route at Three Oaks and Winchelsea; see www.sussexcrp.org. Check www.eastsussex.gov.uk and click onto the roads & transport link for local buses.

The following buses run reasonably regularly during the day from Monday to Saturday, but do check if travelling on Sundays/Bank Holidays:

  • 98 bus from Bexhill to Eastbourne via Boreham Street. This is a useful link if you just want to do the first stage of the walk from Pevensey Castle to Boreham Street as a linear walk. That way you can catch the bus back to Bexhill Station, and then get the rail connection to Pevensey & Westham.
  • East Kent 100 bus runs from Hastings to Dover via Icklesham, Winchelsea and Rye. This is an extremely handy service if you simply want to do the final stage of the walk from Icklesham to Rye as a linear walk; the bus will have you back in Icklesham within 15 mins!
  • 340/341/342 buses from Hastings to Northiam/Tenterden via Westfield. If you decide that you only want to go as far as Westfield, ie the end of Stage 4, then there is a service back to Hastings rail station.
