Crawley is a town and borough found within the ceremonial county of West Sussex, in the south of England. The town is located approximately 28 miles (45 km) south of Charing Cross in London, 18 miles (29 km) north of Brighton and Hove, and 32 miles (51 km) northeast of the county town of Chichester.
The town is located in the far north of the county of West Sussex and, as is the case with many large settlements, actually comprises a number of neighbourhoods and communities. These include approximately 13 which are centred upon the centre of the old market town, as well as three which were formerly the settlements of Ifield, Pound Hill and Three Bridges before they were subsumed by Crawley.
A Brief History Of The Development Of Crawley
Crawley is a significant centre of population today, but that is actually a relatively modern development. For much of its early history from the time when it received its first charter in the 13th century, the town actually remained a relatively important but still quite small market town.
The coming of the railway in the 1840’s to Crawley started to speed up the town’s growth but it was around 100 years later that an incident really caused the town to grow in earnest. This was the opening and establishment of Gatwick Airport in the region, which encouraged growth and impacted upon Crawley being designated as a new town and developing into the settlement we would recognise today.
Modern Day Crawley
Today, the town of Crawley covers an approximate land area of around 18 square miles and according to the latest census data is also home to around 107,000 permanent residents. That shows the town to be a busy and active one which also has a relatively high population density of over 5,000 per square mile.
All of the above then, suggests that Crawley will see a high level of both human and vehicular activity, and as such could also be the location for a comparatively large number of road traffic accidents. It is with that in mind, then, that we will now discuss the key details regarding making Crawley whiplash claims.
