Video Tour of Hastings Link Road January 2016

sotni copyHastings Link Road Video here

We take a tour down the new Hastings Link Road and have a look at the site we believe is the Hastings Burgh. Most recently we have been advised that the Burgh is pronounced Burr in local dialect and like the Croghurst name of early Saxon times the gh was silent.  This in part explains why the Normans pronounced Crogherst  Crerst and then was mistakenly written down as Herst in the Chronicle of Battle Abbey which tells us  that was where the Battle was fought and later moved to the present site because it was not so suitable for such a fine building.

It is important to realise that there is no confirmed site for Alfred’s Burgh at Hastings and I urge those who mistakenly believe otherwise to do their due diligence. Now we have the chance to reinstate the historical record and transform an earthworks on the top of an unmarked hill at the old port of Hastings to its  correct position in English history. People come from across the world to see history in Hastings and now one of  its greatest assets is  awaiting confirmation. Hastings Burgh went missing in 1066 in this the 950th anniversary year of the Battle of Hastings it would be perfect timing for its reinstatement into the historic record and growing 1066 tourist trail.

    Hello Nick, and a very happy new year to you, I admire your courage and find the whole affair a little sad, but who am I to care…wait for the height of summer ! things will certainly improve with a million bl—y cars rushing in all directions to no avail……the Outer Hebrides is becoming so much more appealing, mosquitos and all !!

    Take care and enjoy yourselves,
