Name could mark major milestone

WELCOME it or dread it, the Link Road is here to stay, so let us make the best of it and at least mark its advent with a prestigious name that will enhance the first new road into Hastings this century.

The USA has Route 66, renowned worldwide, so how about Route 1066, or translated into UK English: 1066 Way?

This name would also commemorate permanently the upcoming 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings.

The idea came to me when I received a supermarket checkout receipt this week for £10.66. Now, what are the odds for that happening in Hastings?
