I am the author and creator of ‘1066 Harold’s Way’, a long-distance walk from Westminster Abbey to Battle Abbey, East Sussex, inspired by King Harold’s epic march to the Battle of Hastings. It was an opportunity to research all things 1066 and discover the rich heritage of Kent and East Sussex that led to a second long walk ‘Three Castles and an Ironmaster’s House that explored the history of the High Weald.
Straying from the path and with my interest in 1066 piqued, I wrote ‘The Saxon Times’ – a newspaper’s review of that tumultuous year reporting on the year’s events as they happened.
I am an experienced and anecdotal speaker who brings the history of 1066 and my walks in Kent and Sussex to life.
I believe that my memberships of CAMRA, The Inn Sign Society, The Ramblers and the Long Distance Walkers Association are a perfect match for walking and talking.
I have given talks to groups, clubs and associations, including U3A, Rotary, 41 Club and local history groups, throughout Kent and Sussex.
About my Talks...
All my talks are illustrated (Powerpoint presentations) and last around an hour. I have my own laptop and projector but will require a screen, a table for the projector and a table for my books which will be available to buy at a discounted price.
£75.00 plus reasonable travel expenses and I am available for talks in Kent and Sussex.
