TV5497 : Crowlink

near to Friston, East Sussex, Great Britain

Small hamlet grouped around a manor house. Crowlink has two claims to fame, firstly Edith Nesbitt of Railway Children fame lived here for a while and secondly, during the heyday of smugglers the manor's extensive cellars hid high quality Gin that came to be known as 'Genuine Crowlink'. During the 18th century it was possible to reach the beach at Crowlink gap and became a landing place for smugglers. The track from Crowlink Gap led to Friston then across the Downs towards the Wealden villages where the major gangs were located. This view looks north east from the southern edge of the hamlet.
