About Crowborough

Chimney sweeping in the town of Crowborough is a proper pleasure for James the Sweep. Crowborough’s chimneys are dotted across the landscape of this superb settlement located in East Sussex, found in the north of Wealden District. Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent is only seven miles away. Crowborough itself is a mere four miles from the boundary between Sussex and Kent. The town of Crowborough is also on the border of Ashdown Forest, well-known for being the setting of the Winnie the Pooh stories created by A.A. Milne. The etymological root of ‘Crowborough’ stems from Old English for ‘Croh’ which is referenced to the gorgeous petite gorze flowers evident in the town and nearby areas of Sussex. Crowborough developed thanks to the natural unification of villages over a number of years.  Sweet Haws, Alberbrook, Stone Cross, Whitehall, Poundfield, Jarvis Brook and Steel Cross converged to make the settlement as it is known today. Crowborough in modern times has a good sh0pping centre and recreational areas for residents and visitors alike: Crowborough Country Park, Crowborough Common and Goldsmith Recreation Ground.

Crowborough joins up three main areas: Crowborough Hill, High Street, and London Road. There are other main roads leading into Crowborough, which include Croft Road and Fermor Road, but also Hurtis Hill, Queens Road, Green Lane, Fielden Road, Fielden Lane, Southview Road, and Whitehall Road. James the Sweep keeps himself busy, checking stoves and chimney liners in Crowborough as well as, of course, sweeping chimneys in the town. You will often see his famous van ‘Sweepy’ parked on one of these streets. Crowborough’s residents enjoy a wide range of leisurely pursuits with a hive of activity based at the community centre, as well as the well-respected tennis and squash club. There is also a good number of supermarkets and cafes for convenience and relaxation. Crowborough is a dominant East Sussex town, which mixes both historic interest and modernity in its wonderful local culture. Residents have a  great reputation for showing hospitality. James the Sweep is privileged to be the Master Chimney Sweep for Crowborough.

Crowborough was the home of the creator of Sherlock Holmes. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle lived at Windlesham Manor for 23 years until he died. He moved there from Surrey in 1907. The manor has now become a retirement home. Sir Arthur is still remembered in Crowborough with a statue of him at Crowborough Cross. There are also roads in the town named after the literary genius: Sherlock Shaw and Watson Way, for example. Crowborough used to have a Sherlock Holmes festival to celebrate the connection. Dr Who is also represented in Crowborough for the simple reason that actor Tonm Baker, the fourth doctor, is a resident. Other famous names associated with the town include Piers Sellers, Richard Jefferies, Ross Kemp, Dirk Bogarde, David Jason and Kerry Katona.
