HASTINGS OLD TOWN - LIMITED EDITION GICLEE PRINTS (2006-2012)
Hastings Old Town, the historic Cinque port of the East Sussex coast

HASTINGS OLD TOWN
The Battle of Hastings fought on 14 October 1066 marked the beginning of the Norman Conquest and a pivotal moment in British history. Although the battle itself took place eight miles to the north at Senlac Hill, Now appropriately the site of the town of Battle and William had landed on the coast between Hastings and Eastbourne at a site now known as Norman's Bay, The Battle will always be known as The Battle of Hastings. It is thought that the Norman encampment was on the outskirts of Hastings, where there was open ground. A new town was already being built in the valley to the east. That "New Burgh" was founded in 1069, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Ironically this is now Hastings Old Town!
William defeated and killed Harold Godwinson, the last Saxon King of England, and destroyed his army; thus opening England to the Norman conquest. William had a castle built at Hastings probably using the earthworks of the existing Saxon castle. Hastings was shown as a borough by the time of the Domesday Book (1086)
Hastings and the sea
In the 13th century much of the town was washed away by the sea. During a naval campaign of 1339, and again in 1377, the town was raided and burnt by the French, and seems then to have gone into a decline. As a port, Hastings' days were finished.
Like many coastal towns, the population of Hastings grew significantly as a result of the construction of railway links and the fashionable growth of seaside holidays during the Victorian era.
The Huldrick Studio & Gallery in Hastings is the working studio and exhibition space of artist John Huldrick Wilhelm. One of a growing number of artists in Hastings setting up studios and galleries in the town.
