On Sunday 6th July, Bexhill museum curator Julian Porter will provide an opportunity to explore the deserted medieval settlement of Northeye and Chapel Field.
Discussions will take place about disputes between local abbots and bishops on livestock trade and also this areas role as a limb of the Cinque Ports. Tales of smuggling and salt recovery add to the mystery surrounding this wide expanse of marshland. Suitable footwear is advised as this walk will be over fields which may be muddy in places. There will also be step-over styles to negotiate and livestock grazing nearby.
Meet at 2 pm at the Car park of the Star Inn, Normans Bay. The distance is about 3 miles, taking about 21/2 hours.
There is a charge of £3 for adults and £1.50 for accompanied children. We regret no dogs are allowed on these walks.
