The site of the 1066 Battle of Hastings. The battlefield owes its survival to the founding by William the Conqueror of Battle Abbey on the site as penance for the bloodshed. Much of the battlefield became part of the abbey’s great park, which formed the core of a country estate after the abbey’s suppression in 1538. The screen will be sited among the ruins of this unique abbey.
