Sussex Sojourn – Off to Battle
We didn’t spend all our time relaxing at the cottage. We took a day trip up the road on the Monday to the historic town of Battle and Battle Abbey.
The abbey was constructed overlooking the scene of the battle itself, this is the hill the Norman forces had to charge up. The battle in question being the mis-named Battle of Hastings which, as far as I could judge had no activity at Hastings at all.
These days the area is much more peaceful, even enjoying the presence of symbolic doves.
And, of course remains be they largely intact
or little more than foundations
