    Battle – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. One In The Eye
      Battle is named after the famous battle of October 14th, 1066, when King Harold II of England fought William Duke of Normandy. Despite being outnumbered, the English had 7,500 men, the Normans 8,500, the English forces managed to hold on in a fight that lasted all day. At the end of the battle the English had lost 5,000 men. Harold, who had only became King in January that same year, got one in the eye, his troops lost heart and the Norman’s not only won the day but conquered all England.
    2. Long Walk
      The English had recently fought another battle, against invading Vikings in Stamford Bridge, on the 25th of September, Yorkshire. His army then marched 185 miles in to face the Norman invasion. Although the English army travelled on horseback they fought on foot, the Normans had 3,000 – 5,000 men on horseback. Ironically the Norman’s were actually descended from Viking invaders that had settled on the French coast and created their own kingdom.
    3. How Long?
      The Bayeux Tapestry that depicts the Battle is over 70 metres long. Historians now believe it wasn’t made in Bayeux at all, but actually came from Canterbury. Several sections appear to be missing including a final one that probably depicted William’s coronation. It does however show Haley’s comet passing overhead and also 95 penises (5 on men, the other 88 on horses).
    4. Boom Town
      During the 17th century, Battle was the centre of the British gunpowder industry. It is even rumoured that gunpowder from Battle was used in the Gunpowder plot. The oldest known effigy of Guy Fawkes is held at Battle Museum.
    5. Germany By The Sea
      The name “Sussex” comes from “Suth-Seaxe”, meaning land or people of the South Saxons. The Saxons came from Saxony (now part of Germany) in the 5th Century.
    6. Abbey Landings
      The Abbey that now stands on the battle site was built at the insistence of William the Conqueror and built on the spot that Harold was killed. The Pope had also demanded William build an abbey in his honour in return for the Pope supporting his invasion. At the time Normandy was a separate kingdom and the invasion was opposed by France.
    7. It’s All French To Me!
      It wasn’t William’s final building work. He created castles throughout England to control the rebellious Brits. His most famous castle is Windsor Castle, the world’s oldest and largest castle to be in Royal hands. The Norman’s also introduced Norman and French as the languages of the ruling classes, something that continued for over 300 years!

    About Battle

    One of the most historic places in England and the site of a major turning point in our nation’s history, Battle is a picture postcard location. Many houses within Battle date from the 1700’s. The Almonry (place where alms were distributed to the poor) in the High Street dates back to 1090.

    There are great eateries, funky independent shops and a lively community scene.


    Battle is known for its celebratory bonfires (the town has suspected links to the 1605 Gunpowder Plot), battle re-enactments and annual events which include an arts festival.

    Of course, history buffs will be in their element with so much to explore in the area. Surrounded by countryside there are plenty of paths for dog walkers, runners and bike enthusiasts away from the roads (which in the summer months can carry a large number of tourists). There’s also a sports centre with gym, dance classes, sports pitches and even a climbing wall.


    Surprisingly for such a quiet town, over 100 trains pass through Battle every day on route to London, a journey that takes as little as 1 hour 25 minutes. 7 miles inland from Hastings, (a 15-minute drive) the town is also close to the A259 coastal road that sweeps along the coastline from Kent to Hampshire, taking in a number of famous sights such as Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters.
