Pease Pottage

Map and General Information

[Map showing Pease Pottage]

Pease Pottage lies just south of Crawley, approximately midway between London and Brighton in the south of England. Map shown here from Google Maps - click on the map to show the location on Google Maps.

Pease Pottage is Old English and translates to "pea soup".

The town of Crawley is a vast centre of modern industries, with a huge population of residents that has spilled over into the neighbouring countryside and towns for recreation, shopping and entertainment.
-- New Shell Guide to Britain, 1985

I haven't been able to find any textbooks which mention much at all about Pease Pottage - the National Trust Atlas (1981) contains a map showing the village's location, but that was about it.

Additional Notes

Pease Pottage has a service station, one pub (the Black Swan), and a florist.

Nearby locations visited in Business Unusual include Ashdown Forest, Kemp town in Brighton, and Hove immediately to the west of same.

Millennial Rites says it has a corner shop, and Business Unusual places Mel's home in Downview Crescent - these are both fictional (at least Downview Crescent doesn't appear on Google Maps!).
