    Crowborough – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Elementary My Dear Crowborough
      Sir Arthur Conan Doyle moved home to Windlesham Manor in Crowborough in 1907. He was even captain of the local golf club and lived in the town until his death in 1930.
    2. “Isn’t that What’s-his-name?”
      Other famous residents to have lived in or around Crowborough include; Sir David Jason (actor), Dirk Bogarde (actor/writer), Kerry Katona (singer), Ross Kemp (actor), Sir Tim Waterstone (businessman/founder of Waterstones), Cate Blanchet, (actor) and Kim Woodburn (TV presenter/clean queen).
    3. Canada Green
      In later years Windlesham Manor was requisitioned for the war effort and used to house the 1st Battalion Lincoln and Welland Regiment. The troops made such an impression, that a small garden is dedicated to their memory.
    4. Winnie The Pooh
      Just a mile from Crowborough is Ashdown Forest where you’ll find 100 Acre Wood, the home of Winnie the Pooh. Posingford Bridge was the site of the original game of Pooh sticks. The bridge was rebuilt in the 1970s and is now called Pooh Stick Bridge. There are annual Winnie the Pooh events such as the Heffalump Puffalot Challenge and even a ‘Bearbnb’.
    5. Operation Aspidistra
      Another remarkable site in the Ashdown Forest is the Aspidistra Transmitter. This incongruous metal pole was hugely influential during WWII. It was the world’s most powerful transmitter and was used to transmit fake radio stations, news broadcasts, and communications to mislead and wrong-foot the German war machine and civilian population.
    6. Ignorant and Heathenish
      In 1734 a local benefactor, Sir Henry Fermor, bequeathed funds for a church and school to be built for the “very ignorant and heathenish people” that lived “in or near a place called Crowborough and Ashdown Forest”. While in 1822 William Cobbett described the area as “a heath with here and there a few birch scrubs upon it, verily the most villainously ugly spot I ever saw in England”. Tough crowd!
    7. City Folk
      During the 19th century, Crowborough was reborn as a health resort. It’s high elevation, glorious countryside setting and mild climate made it popular with wealthy city dwellers wanting to enjoy the rolling landscape of Sussex.
    8. Chicken Run Murder
      In 1924, local chicken farmer Norman Thorne was convicted of killing his fiancé Elsie Cameron. The trial and gruesome nature of her death (supposedly dismembered and buried on the farm) attracted national interest, newly local man, the great Sir Arthur Conan Doyle took interest in the case and was one of many who believed it was Thorne was innocent. Thorne was hanged on 22 April, 1925, on what would have been Cameron’s birthday.

    About Crowborough

    Situated in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to Ashdown Forest, Crowborough really is spoilt with stunning countryside and a gentler pace of life. A small town with a village feel and sociable local community, the town benefits from proximity to large towns like Brighton, Royal Tunbridge Wells and London but retains all the charms of a small Sussex idle.

    It has superb local producers and independent artisan food and drink with many of the new wave of companies in the area going carbon neutral to do their bit against climate change.


    If you enjoy fresh air, country walks, bike rides or just being in the great outdoors then Crowborough has it all. Ashdown Forest offers 6,500 acres of countryside to explore including 100 Acre Wood, home to Winnie the Pooh. There’s also Crowborough Common which happened to be protected by the CROW Act (Countryside Rights Of Way) making it another great place to enjoy the Weald.

    Crowborough also has a number of clubs, groups and societies if you’re looking for a new hobby or interest, plus there are a number of events and festivals through the year.


    This relatively small town in a quiet corner of Sussex offers excellent transport links. Sitting on the A26 south of Royal Tunbridge Wells, Crowborough is just 18 miles from the M23 and 20 miles from the M25. Frequent flyers can be at Gatwick Airport in 30 minutes by car and London commuters or day trippers can reach the capital in 1 hour and 9 minutes by train.
