The village of Fulford is these days more or less a part of York, though retaining a distinct identity, just a couple of miles south of the city centre. Access is easy, as the settlement is just off the A64 ring-road. The Battle of Fulford took place in the area on September 20 1066, where Harold’s forces in the North were defeated by the Viking army of Harald Hardrada and King Harold’s treacherous brother Tostig. Though the Vikings were defeated shortly afterwards at Stamford Bridge the loss at Fulford was significant – had the Vikings lost at Fulford Harold’s own army would have been less exhausted at Hastings. Fulford, its population 2595 in 2001, is a pleasant village inhabited by many staff of the nearby University of York, and it enjoys a great position with the championship golf course to the east, and York racecourse to the west. Fulford golf course has a tenuous link with Augusta National and the Masters – when it moved to the current site in the thirties the course was designed by Charles Mackenzie who was the brother of Alister Mackenzie, co-designer with Bobby Jones of the Masters course. The River Ouse lies to the west of the settlement, a Millennium project footbridge linking the village with the other side of the river. There is a Sustrans cycle path in the area along the disused York-Selby railway line, with a 10km layout of the solar system laid out along it.
