Does anyone know what the Crown Plaza Hotel was in 1985?

Hi Len. Apparently it was called Crest Hotel in the 1980s.

And before that, in the 1970s it was known as the Airport Hotel.

My wife (born in 56) and I (born 55) were just chatting about the shops on Ifield and Langley green parades.
Crawley gets bad press but it was better designed back then than modern developments are today. Our mums got everything they wanted from the local shops. Got a bit of exercise into the bargain as there were very few cars and of course the industrial estate where pretty much the whole of Crawley worked. Great companies like the APV co ltd and Edwards high vacuum and many more great names. Yes Crawley was a great place to grow up
