Crawley Down Village Centre

   Welcome to Crawley Down Village Website


Crawley Down Village, together with Copthorne form Worth Parish Council and is situated in the northeast corner of West Sussex close to the borders of Surrey and Kent. Crawley Down is handy for the M23 and only about a ten minute drive from Gatwick Airport, Three Bridges and East Grinstead railway stations.

Until 1967 the village was served by Grange Road railway station on the Three Bridges to Tunbridge Wells Line which was closed as a result of the Beeching Axe. The old track bed has been revitalised as a linear Country Park called the Worth Way which now offers a haven for wildlife and a valued trail for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The Worth Way extends to Crawley in the West and East Grinstead in the East.

This website is a community project run by the Crawley Down Village Website Association. Until the end of 2021 the Association was funded by a number of local businesses. This funding was used to provide much needed grants for local Crawley Down organisations. For further information about grants that we have given go to "The Association" page and follow the link you will find there. However, after some 15 years we have decided to discontinue the grants are are no longer seeking sponsorship by local businesses.

This site provides a wealth of information about the village and its surrounding areas. So, if you want to know about the local schools, churches, transportation, amenities, sports facilities and much more, you should find all you need here.
