    1066 Country Walk sculptures take their place

    Installation has begun of the impressive oak sculptures that will be an integral part of a major makeover for a long-distance walk in East Sussex. The 31-mile 1066 Country walk, which begins at Pevensey, passes through Battle and ends at Rye, is being transformed into a major 1066 visitor attraction. Taking the Bayeux Tapestry as his theme, East Sussex sculptor Keith Pettit has spent months working on a series of large impressive wooden sculpture to mark key sites along the route.
