Pound Hill[change | change source]

Pound Hill is a neighbourhood in Crawley. Pound Hill is located on the east of Crawley. It is the largest of the 13 neighbourhoods of Crawley. Until 2004, it was the first one to be split into two wards - Pound Hill North and Pound Hill South. Its boundaries extend north beyond the main built-up area of Crawley. This makes it also the most northerly neighbourhood in the town.
