1066 and other things
"... and all that" would be a cliche, though I have resolved to get the book and re-read it. Yesterday Fr Briggs and I surveyed the battlefield at Battle and took the longer walk all around it as well as visiting the ruins of the Abbey that King William built in reparation for all the slaughter of that decisive clash.
Today we climbed up to the keep of Lewes Castle and looked over the motte and bailey mound that was one of Williams first establishments to consolidate his position.
Tomorrow we'll take our customary stroll over Beachy Head. Here is a video from a previous visit.
