The Bexhill section of the 1066 walk has benefitted from the building of the new link road. Paths have been improved and the creation of a new lake is a definite plus. Took us about an hour to walk from Bexhill Old Town to Crowhurst....More

What a lovely atmosphere we loved walking around the area and enjoying all the beautiful homes and businesses we felt like we had stepped back in time. Loved it and can't wait to share this beautiful town with friends and family

Accessed this walk by bus from Rye, A good walk, at Fairlight cove we picked up the Saxon Way which was extremely muddy. I think we would have fared better to have stayed on the 1066

But an Ordnance Survey explorer map of area in good bookshop. Plenty of options to create circular walks round Camber, Rye and Winchelsea.
