Crawley is a large town on the eastern edge of West Sussex. It is situated at the southern end of the M23, the A23 extending beyond Crawley to the south coast at Brighton. Other main routes leading to Crawley include the A23 (from Horely to the north), the A264 from Copthorne (to the east) and the A264 from Horsham (to the west) - which becomes the A2220 as it enters the centre of Crawley. An important aspect of Crawley is its immediate proximity to London Gatwick airport, directly north of the centre of Crawley. This is, of course, a major source of income and jobs for the town and supports many small businesses in this area.
Suburbs of and villages around Crawley include Tilgate, Maidenbower, Three Bridges, Pound Hill, Worth, Black Corner, Tinsley Green, Lowfield Heath, Ifield and Lambs Green.
