Crowborough is the largest inland town in East Sussex, Winnie the Pooh territory. Crowborough is 800ft (240m) above sea level.
It is found in historical documents as Croweborowghe, Crohbergh, Crowbergh, Crowboro and Crowbarrow.
Croh is the Old English 'croh', meaning the colour of saffron, golden-yellow colour and 'bergh' means hill. Crowborough Beacon is the highest point in the South East, visible for miles around, with yellow gorse flowers most of the year round.
