Join for a fun day walking the 1006 Walk.
Walks starting from various points and various lengths, for all the family.
Fancy a great day out with the family? Join us for this historic walk in the beautiful Sussex countryside.
Raising funds for St Michael's Hospice and the Rotary Club of Battle, the annual 1066 Walk takes place on Sunday 29th September and is open to everyone; from casual walkers to serious ramblers, clubs, societies, friends and families alike. It is a wonderful way to get active and raise funds for both organisations.
The walk has three starting points: Pevensey with a walking distance of 16 miles, Boreham Street with 9 miles or Stevens Crouch with just 4 miles, so the event is really great for people of all abilities. The walk finish line is within the grounds of Battle Abbey, where delicious complimentary tea and cakes will be served. You will also get the opportunity after your refreshments, and courtesy of English Heritage, to visit the battlefield and atmospheric ruins of Battle Abbey free of charge. Dogs are welcome on the walk, but must be kept on a lead. The walk is fully marshalled and participants are provided with comprehensive guidance.
It’s only £7.50 to register for both adults and children. However, this fee only covers only administration costs so both St Michael’s Hospice and Battle Rotary Club kindly ask that you raise as much sponsorship as you can.
