Take a look at our website heading above and note the Pelham
Buckle. The emblem became the Pelham family crest in 1356, then 56 years later
the village of Crowhurst was bequeathed to John Pelham by King Henry 1V. So,
began the history of Crowhurst Park.
The Lord of
the estate formed the Cricket Club in
1836 and it is recorded that on the 28th of May 1895 a match was
played between Crowhurst Park and Crowhurst village in the gardens of the Manor
House before the ground was moved to the current location. The Pelham buckle
can be seen displayed on many prominent buildings in the area and it remains a
central part of our club badge proudly respected and worn by all club members.
Today we are a prospering ambitious club with strong family
virtues and community values. Our ground is located within the Crowhurst Park
estate in an area of outstanding natural beauty with outstanding views across
the Sussex countryside stretching to the English Channel. We operate completely
self-sufficient with total responsibility for the maintenance of our
facilities. We have four adult teams playing in the Sussex Premier and East
Sussex leagues. Our thriving Junior Section runs five teams playing local
competitive cricket. Additionally, we have Sunday and Mid-Week matches and our
recently formed Ladies Section play with great spirit and more than a little
Our pavilion forms the all-important social centre of
the club to which we offer a warm and friendly welcome to everyone
