The town of Haywards Heath in West Sussex is just 36 miles south of london and only 12 miles from Brighton. Burgess Hill and Horsham are nearby and Haywards Heath is a commuter town with its own busy railway station.
The town is noted for nothing particularly special having a main road running through it with adequate shopping facilities and a number of good restaurants. South Road is the main shopping area in the town and it does have its own shopping arcade called "Orchards".
This blob of residential pile in the West Sussex countryside is surrounded by some nice villages and it does have the Bluebell Railway with its preserved steam trains and day trips for families. Ardingly Reservoir is not too far away either. This is a town that developed rapidly in the 1970's to provide much needed housing for people working in London.
There is not a great deal of anything of any historical interest here but as a residential area it has everything you would need.
