British Roundabout Obsessions and The Battle of Hastings

British Roundabout Porn and The Battle of Hastings

In Britain there is a unique subset of people who are fascinated and obsessed with roundabouts. Not your average concrete roundabouts with some paving or a few weeds in the middle. But rather your fancy, pond or windmill in the centre roundabouts.

A few years back, the Time Team revealed that a key point in the Battle of Hastings of 1066, was fought on top of what is currently a village roundabout on the A2100 in East Sussex.

Yes apparently, the army of the last Anglo-Saxon King Harold finally succumbed to William the Conqueror on top of a mini-roundabout here.

This adds some interest to the stories of British roundabouts. So here they are in all of their circular glory.
