We walked along part of the 1066 trail from Westfield to the coast and from Icklesham to Rye via Winchelsea over 2 separate days. The scenery is very varied and the views to the sea magnificent. Along the way we stopped off at the Two Sawyers Pub in Pett, Coastguard's Cafe at Firelight, the New Inn at Winchelsea and the... More

The best thing about this walk is the fact it is 1,066 steps long Can you believe it ? That's the same number as the date it commemorates What a coincidence If you're visiting Rye do this walk and you'll feel better for it Then eat a pie at Simon the Pieman

We walked this country trail in four days, returning each time to our B&B Aviemore in Rye. We started in Pevensy and got there by bus. It takes a bit of planning, but travelling by bus is very doable. We saw beautifull churches, interesting sites (Battle) and enjoyed the views, sometimes it was a little hard to find the way,...

Get your walking shoes on and go and see this lovely countryside. We went at the best time as we saw lambs being born on the way to Camber Castle. Rye is lovely if a tad twee and pricey - but definitely worth a visit.

I walked from Rye to Battle and thought this was a very good walk. It's well signposted, you won't need a OS map. Just keep an eye out for the markers some of them are slightly covered with overgrowth, got lost 2 or 3 times but I was back on the main path again within 5 mins. Depending on the... More

Walked the 1066 from Rye to Winchelsea. It was very well sign posted and you can llink it in with another route to make it a circular walk back to Rye via Camber Castle.....if you take an OS map. I have also walked the 1066 from Bodiam to Battle, again a very well marked route, so no going wrong and... More

Great hike with history seeping out of the ground. This is where the battle took place in 1066. You don't have to be a history buff to enjoy a couple of hours here. Enjoy a drink at The Mermaid Inn after your tour.

We had excellent weather (warm sunshine in January) and were accompanied by a variety of birdsong. Would be even better if thoughtless dog walkers picked up!

I started the hike in Battle (about half way) heading towards Rye. I probably spent too much time looking over the battlefield, got a bit of a late start. Well, I had a couple maps but not the surveyors map. I would highly recommend getting a proper map!! I got lost about four miles from Rye. It was beautiful countryside... More

I walked the 1066 Country Walk twice in 2007 -- once with my father in August to celebrate a landmark birthday and once before that in May-June to familiarize myself with the route. I thoroughly enjoyed it, both for the history and the landscape. Late May was much wetter and muddier than August, but bring trainers nonetheless for the lengthy... More
