DITCHLING'S FAMOUS MANOR AND CRAWLEY'S OLD-WORLD INN

DITCHLING'S FAMOUS MANOR AND CRAWLEY'S OLD-WORLD INN

Henry VIII is said to have made this old manor house one of his numerous gifts to Anne Boleyn. Several other old houses and a thirteenth century church make the village a delightful stage on the way. Crawley is the first town over the Sussex border, coming from London along the Brighton Road. The main street is quaintly divided, the east side being in Crawley parish and the west in Ifield. The tower of the church is fourteenth century. The George is one of the few inns which maintains a sign reaching right across the road.
