Final fight to save 1066 battlefield





THE final push in a long-running fight to save the site of the "other battle of 1066'' will begin tomorrow.

Campaigners will be appealing against a housing development on a water meadow near the scene of the Battle of Fulford, which is on the outskirts of York.

It was seen by some as a crucial factor in Saxon King Harold's defeat less than a month later by William, Duke of Normandy, at Hastings.

Objectors believe that a proposed approach road for the 750-home project will obliterate the heritage site.
