Crawley Memorial Gardens
Shortly after the end of the First World War in 1921, the local community raised the funds to purchase the land for the Memorial Gardens, so that it could be kept as a public recreation ground, in memory of those who lost their lives during the Great War. The Memorial Gardens are now held in Trust by Crawley Borough Council. LinkExternal link
