High Weald

Description: Crowhurst lies on a back road between Battle and Hastings. The village is first mentioned in 771 as Croghyrst, when King Offa of Mercia, gave the Bishop of Selsey 8 hides (a measurement of area) within the village. In return, the Bishop built a church for the population. The village has few services, but is on a main rail line to London and 4 miles from Battle, the main shopping town in the area.
