A Norman soldier

Battle of Northam 1069 talk and walk

Sunday 24th September 2023

Everyone knows the battle of Hastings, but what started in 1066 ended in Northam Parish. Join author Nick Arnold for a talk and guided walk over the battlefield at Northam. Find out what really happened in the ultimate showdown in June 1069, then see the Norman killing fields for yourself.

A 40-minute talk will be followed by an approximately 2-mile walk, easy but with some moderate slopes.

Meet at 2pm at the Small Marquee, Skern Lodge, Appledore, Devon, EX39 1NG
