Been a long time since I was down that way, had a weeks camping in Pevensey when I was a 16 year old lad, got to see Pevensey Castle but not much else
The battle was fought at Senlac hill. William built an abbey close by, and the town of Battle grew up around it.
Absolutely hastings, Elevator, gas, soccer and we put you into everything, labour, colour, ha ha, we could go on and on
I think you're right, Rover, but we really don't entirely speak the same language: loo, telly, etc.
I think it was Oscar Wilde, who said, "two nations divided by a common language"
I'm proud of my heritage. I'll bet, though, that folks in England pronounce the name differently than we do here in South Texas!
I should correct myself before some one else does, William the Conqueror actually landed at Pevensey Bay, further along the coast
The battle was fought about 10 miles inland at a place now called Battle.
I remember "the battle of Hastings Hill". Have traced both my father's and mother's lines to England. Mother's name was Whicker, a version, I believe, of Wicker.
I thought this might get your attenion kshastings.Its a town on the southern coast of England, it's the landing place of the Normans led by William the Conqueror in 1066
is Hastings actually on the water? That would delight me!
