1890HistoryCrowborough CommonFirmin's Guide
"Nature has been very bountiful to Crowborough. Placed on one of the most elevated ridges in the county of Sussex, it commands extensive panoramic views, being surrounded by valleys and hills richly beautified in form and colour. What can be more exquisite than the picture exhibited from the point where the Beacon Hill Road meets the Common. The wide expanse of gorse, covered with its flower-mantle of golden hue; further on, the broad space of heather mingling with the citron tone of the grass; beyond this, cultivated fields vieing with the emerald in richness; the deep-toned greys of the woods on the gently sloping hills, with the rich browns of the ploughed earth; the almost sapphire tone of some of the distant hills, the blue and purple greys which enwrap the others, and between them a glimpse of the sea, like a field of silver up to the horizon, make a scene of beauty unsurpassed in the South of England."
