House Removals Haywards Heath
Haywards Heath is one of the most popular towns in West Sussex. Along with its neighbour Burgess Hill, the area has been blossoming economically and provides many jobs for those living in the area. However, due to excellent road and railway links, some of the 25,000 citizens commute to London or Gatwick.
Although Haywards Heath is relatively modern compared to a lot of the quaint locations in West Sussex the Ouse Valley, the South Downs and Ash Down forest are all on the doorstep of the town. Being nestled in the heart of beautiful countryside gives many locals a perfect balance between town and country living.
Until Victorian time, Haywards Heath was a small village which was outranked by its neighbours Cuckfield and Lindifield. Development and growth was an accident for Haywards Heath, with the train line originally planned to go through Cuckfield; this was met with outrage from locals. When the railway opened in 1841 the line ran through Haywards Heath and brought prosperity to the town and helped shape it into what it is today.
