A section of a boardwalk in the New Town area of Crawley in West Sussex, full of shops and various marketplace activities. When Crawley became a new town in 1947, it was intended to be economically self-sustaining and plans for the city to become a center for the manufacturing industry were put into place. Crawley has since had a history of industrial development, building and manufacturing. Continuous growth and investment have made Crawley one of the most important business and employment centers in the South East England region.
