- Sussex /
In September 1066, William, Duke of Normandy brought his army to Pevensey, Sussex and went on to defeat King Harold in the town of Battle in what many people know as the Battle of Hastings.
You can follow in the steps of William the Conqueror taking in historical sites on a generally low level walk through ancient towns and villages, over hillsides and through woodland, and passing oast houses and windmills. The route includes the Normans' landing point at Pevensey and the battle site, and the castles at Pevensey and Herstmonceux.
Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 10 hours 36 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 2833 calories will be burnt.
