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

We walked this country trail in four days, returning each time to our B&B Aviemore in Rye. We started in Pevensy and got there by bus. It takes a bit of planning, but travelling by bus is very doable. We saw beautifull churches, interesting sites...More

Hi i will be in Camber sands for the day on a Saturday in august and I wanted to do a part of the country walk near camber sands which is not to long or far. Where do I get a map from and does anyone have any recommendations on nearby areas to walk to?

But an Ordnance Survey explorer map of area in good bookshop. Plenty of options to create circular walks round Camber, Rye and Winchelsea.
I plan to walk this route over two and a half days with two overnight stops - at Ashburnham and Westfield. Any accommodation ideas welcome.

Plenty of options in Rye but en route not sure. The Brian Smailes book might help?
