Original Crocodile Public House, The original building was erected on the waste in 1701 In the will of James Luxtord brickmaker, dated 1847, it was described as a beerhouse. Presumably he was also a beer retailer. On his death in the same year, it passed to his widow, Mary, and in 1860 to John Harvey of Lewes, a brewer, with William May as the tenant. The earliest use the name "The Crocodile" is in the Court Books of the Manor of Horsted Broadhurst in 1864, though to this day no has come up with a satisfying explanation as to why this unusual name was chosen. The house was rebuilt about 1907 and the May family remained licencees until 1954. In late 1980s it was closed and is now three private houses
