Monday. Drove to Pevensey, where we stayed in a 15th century cottage about 100 yards from the castle. It was really creaky. Went for a lovely evening stroll around the ruins. This was where the Norman fleet landed apparently.
Note moody moat.
A view from the castle through Roman arch, (note the difference in construction between the Roman Bailey wall and Norman Keep walls. Spot the pub). Still with me? We stayed in a cottage down that road.
Tuesday. We went to Battle (not literally) to see Battle Abbey and the Battle of Hastings battlefield (try that sentence when you're drunk). Very nice in the hot sunshine which got me despite the Factor 30 sunscreen.
The Novices room
Some room or other (I forgot to look)
Oh look, more ruins
The battlefield. Didn't see any arrows.
After that we went to Rye, which was boring.
Oh, the irony...
So we went and sat on the beach at Pevensey Bay instead.
Ow. Stones. No invasion fleet was spotted. Phew. (those people aren't us, btw)
Wednesday. Went to Brighton. No photos of the massive row I had with my mum in the street.
Saw the Wilmington Long Man chalk Hill Figure. Sadly not as well hung as the one at Cerne Abbas.
Then we went to see my uncle and that was it.
Thursday. Came home. Too lazy to look at anything else.
