The Hastings Embroidery was commissioned by Group Captain Ralph Ward and made by the Royal School of Needlework in 1965 to celebrate the 900th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings.

It consists of 27 panels, each 9 x 3 ft, and shows 81 great events in British history. It took 22 embroiderers 10 months to finish.

The Hastings Embroidery is worked in applique by hand, with the addition of couched threads and cords, tweed from Scotland, fabrics from the Victoria and Albert Museum, and feathers from London Zoo.

The Embroidery was on public display in Hastings, firstly in the Town Hall and then at the White Rock Pavilion (a large theatre). It was taken from there and placed in storage. The interesting question now is - where is it now, and when will it be placed back on public display?
