Bizarre Streets: Priory Way, Haywards Heath

After starting off at Langley Lane, in Ifield, we now travel south towards the fine Mid Sussex Town of Haywards Heath, one of the few places in the UK that does officaly not have a "Street", and visit Priory Way.

Priory Way

Location: Haywards Heath, Sussex, England, UK, Europe, Earth

This street first emerged from wonderful woodland in the 1960's, it gains its name from the fact there is a fine church nearby, hence Priory Way. The Street contains a fine park for secretly letting of fireworks if you are a bit adventourous. The early history of the street is unknown, but it sounds like it may have been common spot for Fox Hunters, possibly even Genghis Khan may have had a holiday villa with attractive babes on the site here once. Anyway it is in a unique position being in a quiet location not too far away from The Heaths bustling town centre. Dan Miles who has been resident for some time at this address, though he also divides his time at a alternative residence in West Wales, due to University described it as a fine example of a average Sussex Street (or Road as Haywards Heath folk prefer to call Streets), with nice upmarket houses, some not so impressive ones and a little bit of Sussex scenery with the park. I was just about to talk to him about what was the main focal point of the Priory Way community when he had to catch the train back to Wales. I wished him a safe journey.

Notable residents: (past and present) Genghis Khan and thousands of blonde babe (not only joking), Dan Miles

1. Langley Lane, Ifield (Crawley), Sussex, England

The first street to reside in the series of Bizarrestreets is Langley Lane, in Ifield, Crawley, which is at present home to Mr Charles Ball myself.

Name: Langley Lane

Location: Ifield, Crawley, Sussex, England, UK, Europe, Planet Earth

Langley Lane is located in the very villagey part of Ifield (though Ifield also has a shitty part), in Crawley it is a very different world to the rest of the bland, soulless, dodgy, London like town that is Crawley. For starters it has a unique Quaker room meeting house, that is almost like a court house a much better place to decide the action on Crawleys ASBOs. It is a long but dead end street, so you don't get much traffic going through unless some clowns have taken a wrong turning thinking its a through road. But it still somehow along with a few other streets nearby manages to retain the Sussex character though it is slowly getting Londonized, and found most of the locals are foreign. As you come in you will notice a fine surgery called Langley Corner surgery, where all kinds of people with in 10-15 miles of the surgery seem to go for treatment (including even Wayne Henderson). Anyway the biggest claim to fame the street has is that it is the place where the book for the Alfred Hitchcock movie Dial M for Murder was written in a house called Belgair house now demolished. Other residents of the street include

 Peter Crouch, Charles Ball, Kevin Holman, Eamonn Rea, John Trice, David Niblett, and Wallace and Gromit.

I have lived in the street for about 7-8 months, and is not a bad place but hope to get out of here and escape soon. LOL
