IFIELD is on the outskirts of Crawley, but it has a conservation area which contains the old village green, St Margaret’s Church and the Plough Inn. The old Ifield Watermill on the millpond is open some Sundays in summer and the timber-framed miller’s house is now a pub, The Mill House. A larding of new houses was added in 1956. You can buy a three-bedroom Fifties’ semi at £175,000 and two-bedroom cottages from £160,000 (£180,000 in the conservation area). A grander period family house overlooking the green might be bought for £500.000.
