    This achievement seems like a homage to the intro cinematic/trailer for the first Assassin’s Creed game which was released in 2007.
    A distrust area is an area where guards will attack you on sight. You will know you are in a distrust area as it will say so in red under your navigation bar.

    * A cn_Y button prompt will appear when you get near a group of monks for you to blend in.

    * You must have a cloak equipped to be able to blend in.

    * No skills are required to blend in.

    There are three locations in England that are always distrust areas and remain distrust areas into endgame. These locations are Ledecestre in Ledecestrescire, Wincestre and Colcestre in Essexe. Groups of monks can be found in all three of these locations.

    - A good place to do this is in Ledecestre in the Ledecestrescire region in England.

    There is a group of monks that walk back and forth between the western most gate/bridge to the middle of the city.

    Climb over the western wall without being seen and wait for them to get close. Hold cn_Y to blend in with them and walk along with them. You should pass at least two areas with guards.

    This is a video of the location: (location on the map is at the end of the video)

    - Another good place to do this is in Wincestre in England.

    There are two groups of monks that walk back and forth through the two guards at the entrance of the southeastern gate/bridge of Wincestre to the end of the bridge that leads into Hamtunscire.

    Approach from the south (outside the walls of Wincestre) and wait for a group of monks to make their way to the end of the bridge to then blend in with them. (Credit for this location to USS Prometheus.)

    ColzoHHad this achievement as my last achievement since launch version and hoping the newest would’ve fixed this achievement bug but it never so what I done is just start again skipped all skippable cutscenes and conversations and I made it to england ledecestrescire for 1 hour and 30 minutes done the usual link into religious people and got close enough to assassinate and it popped no problem.. so for all those trying to get it to work on there older version saves just restart and it works, time to delete this glitchy game once n for all

    MrNoseI ended up having to do the same thing that ColzoH posted. Personally did it last night and it popped without issue. On my 200 hour save I tried daily to get the achievement in Wincestre's south gate and it never worked but as soon as I started a new game and got to Ravensthorpe I went straight to Ledecestre and it popped right away.

    sportjames23@ColzoH, I did what you said, started a new game, and it worked for me.

    RonnieHotdogThe Leicester guide doesn't work. Haven't any problems with unlocking achievements on the game but this didn't work. I saw a video of someone doing it in Colcestre which looks more reliable.

    Konquerer DonI did it twice (once on stadia amd once on Xbox). Both of times I did in Cent. Find Canterbury, walk towards the synchronisation point. There are guards by the entry into the town. There are monks waiting nearby. You DO NOT need to assassinate anyone. Once you approach the monk and hold Y, you will blend. However you will need to walk slowly by yourself so it’s not like original Assassin’s Creed 1 where Altair walks automatically.

    revo714Great solution Konquerer Don! Worked perfectly.

    Trimbler+1 for the solution suggested by @ColzoH: started a new game, got to England, found a big town (I went to Cantebury in Cent), and saw it pop a few seconds after hooking up with the first band of monks I found passing a guard. I was playing on easy with low detection and my game save said I was about 3 hours into that playthrough.

    SchfoogeI eventually gave in and started a new game. As soon as I landed in England, I went to Ledecestre and got it on the first attempt.
