SHUTTERS IN CRAWLEY
Crawley’s history can be traced as far back as the Stone (Neolithic) Age. Crawley’s name is derived from the Anglo Saxon crawe leah meaning a ‘crow infested clearing’.
In 1962 the town had a thriving community of 60,000, and the original nine neighbourhoods increased to ten. As at 2019, Crawley has a population of around 114,000 with 14 neighbourhoods, the largest inland town in West Sussex.
Situated in the heart of the countryside, halfway between London and Brighton, Crawley is a thriving and dynamic town.
