Churches & Abbeys in Hastings & 1066 Country

A wander around any of 1066 Country's old buildings or streets can often lead to an unexpected journey into the past. 

Battle Abbey tells the story of the invasion and of the many dark and difficult days that followed its construction.

Parts of the abbey, including the Great Gatehouse were built or customised to enable the abbots to defend the coast from French raids during the 14th century.

It's a little known fact that during this period, England's South Coastal defences were generally organised by abbots and monks!
