Looking towards Senlac Hill

Looking towards Senlac Hill

Senlac Hill near Battle is the site of 'The Battle Of Hastings' 1066 East Sussex, England. Harold II was killed in this battle and the English became disorganized allowing the Normans to win the battle.
It was originally known in English as Santlache 'Sandy Stream' which the Normans punned into Sanguelac 'Blood Lake' which was then shortened to Senlac. Senlac Hill was 275 feet above sea level, before the top of the ridge was leveled off to create Battle Abbey.
