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It is found in historical documents as Croweborowghe, Crohbergh, Crowbergh, Crowboro and Crowbarrow.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.
Therefore the origin of the name Crowborough is probably 'a golden coloured hill'.
Crowborough beavers, Crowborough cubs, Crowborough Scouts and Crowborough explorers are famous for their adventures. Crowborough Scout Group provides events for the children of Crowborough, these activities include Canoeing, Sailing, Hillwalking, Backpacking, Mountaineering, Climbing, Camping, Pioneering, Hiking, forestry, air activities, archery, go karts, raft races, soapbox derby, night hikes, sleepovers, awakeovers, formal meals, cycling and bushcraft.
The nearest and largest Scout camp site is
