Badgers evicted as Link Road contractors destroy setts

Site of Norman longboat located

An important step towards finding further evidence to back his theory that the Battle of Hastings took place in Crowhurst Valley has been taken by local historian, Nick Austin, who says he has located the site of a buried Norman longboat, which must have formed part of the invasion fleet, HOT’s Nick Terdre reports.

New battlesite theory collides with road plans

Recent research by local historian Nick Austin points to Crowhurst Valley as the site of the Battle of Hastings – just where the Bexhill to Hastings link road is due to be built. If the road goes ahead on the currently planned route, he fears it will destroy what could become a World Heritage Site and a major attraction for Hastings, writes Nick Terdre.

Campaign against BHLR steps up a gear

Roughly two hundred people attended a “Stop the Road” Camp & Rally in Combe Haven Valley on 29/30 September, celebrating the beauty of the valley and enjoying a remarkable weekend of speeches, workshops, shadow puppetry, children’s theatre, story-telling, campfires, local music and great food. Nearly half of those attending signed a new pledge, expressing their willingness to ‘take part in acts of peaceful resistance to the road’, with some fifty people taking part in an “Introduction to Direct Action” workshop on the Saturday afternoon.

Link road not inevitable, says campaigner

Work on the Bexhill to Hastings Link Road (BHLR) is due to start in January 2013 and exploratory trenches are already being dug at the Combe Haven site.  However, for those who feel it isn’t an ideal time in humanity’s history for over £100 million to be spent on a road, there is still time to campaign. HOT’s Zelly Restorick spoke to nationally respected transport and environmental campaigner, John Stewart, who is due to speak at this weekend’s ‘Stop The Road’ rally at Combe Haven.
