<br />
An artist has been inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry to create a series of wooden sculptures which commemorate the year 1066.<br />
<br />
Keith Pettit, 49, has used chainsaws and cutters to fashion the figures which will be displayed along the 1066 Country Walk in East Sussex.<br />
<br />
It was a momentous period in English history with the death of Edward the Confessor, the Norman conquest and the Battle of Hastings.<br />
<br />
The 31-mile path follows William the Conqueror's progress as he brought his army to Pevensey before defeating King Harold in Battle.<br />
<br />
In total, he will make 10 sculptures, with the project set to be completed in Spring 2021.
