Battle was overrun by an army of mini Normans and Saxons yesterday (Friday, October 14) as children from schools across 1066 country took part in a parade through the centre of town to mark the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings.

Led by a military band, pupils from Battle Abbey School, Battle and Langton, Catsfield, Claremont, Claverham, Crowhurst, Netherfield, Ninfield, Robertsbridge, Sedlescombe and Vinehall took part in this spectacle.
