BATTLE

Battle, is situated 79km from London in the county of East Sussex.

It was in 1066, when William the Conqueror and his Army marched inland to meet King Harold's forces at the now known town of BATTLE.
In memory of the fallen, William marked the Battle sight by building the Abbey.

You can do a walk that takes in the Battle sites over the area. You would have to allow several days. I have the brochure, and the walk starts at Pevensey Castle, then takes you through ancient village's and key historic sites to Battle Abbey [16miles] and further on.

    I was also rather bored by the actual battlefield, but my son found it fascinating. (He was ten at the time.)

    Great tips on this very historic part of England, and it looks like the weather cooperated for you as well. Your overview photo of Battle Abbey School is amazing!! Thanks for the tour.

    Sounds like you found Battle Abbey interesting. As someone who has lived not too far away for most of my life it's always been one of my favourite places so it's nice to see that I'm not alone.
