Features

If wanting to visit Battle Abbey at the end of this walk, then you should plan to set off early and take the late lunch stop. Otherwise this walk is suited for a late start and consequently an early lunch stop and a longer afternoon section, which should give you a healthy appetite for an evening meal at one of the many establishments in Battle.
