Pevensey is a village and civil parish in the Wealden district of East Sussex, England. The main village is located five miles north-east of Eastbourne, one mile inland from Pevensey Bay. It was here that William the Conqueror made the landing in his invasion of England in 1066 after crossing the English Channel from Normandy, France.

It is situated on a spur of sand and clay, about 33 feet above sea level. In Roman times this spur was a peninsula that projected into a tidal lagoon and marshes. A small river runs along the north side of the peninsula and would originally have discharged into the lagoon, but is now largely silted up.

The Village is also the start point of the 1066 Country Walk which is a long-distance footpath covering many historical sites in the area.  Wikipedia
