The area has been inhabited since the Stone Age, and was a center of iron working in Roman times. Crawley developed slowly as a market town from the 13th century, serving the surrounding villages in the Weald. Its location on the main road from London to Brighton brought passing trade, which encouraged the development of coaching inns. A rail link to London opened in 1841.

      Hi Alan, all our events are simply pay on arrival as we know that sometimes things can happen that can prevent people from arriving on the day, all we ask is that if this is the case you just message one of us to let us know. Thanks

      Hi Neil, unfortunately we can not allow you to stay on site as there wont be any admin there but we can certainly find somewhere for you to park but you would need to be one of the first to arrive so that we can get you in first. You would need to be there at around 7am if possible. Thanks
