Battle of Hastings mosaic goes on display

A marvellous recreation of the Bayeux Tapestry depicting the Battle of Hastings has gone on display at St Mary in the Castle, after being transported halfway round the world from New Zealand. The recreation, a steel mosaic, also includes historical sections missing from the famous tapestry. Nick Terdre went to view it. Photos by Tracy Hobden, Hastings Borough Council.
