Harold's Way

'1066 Harold's Way is not a particularly demanding walk. There are no steep climbs up rocky hills sides, weaving in and out of tumbling streams or walking on land more suitable for sheep. There is no coarse gorse or heather to scratch unwary legs or sodden peat to sap your strength ... 1066 Harold's Way will link with other paths, trails and long distance footpaths in the South East and will compliment existing walks in Kent and Sussex.'

'Long distance footpath inspired by King Harold’s epic journey from London to Senlac Hill, to the site of the Battle of Hasting, 14th October 1066.' Note The original Website cited here was inaccessible for a time.  So I replaced it with a description by Kent Ramblers.
