Balcombe is a village and civil parish in the Mid Sussex district of West Sussex, England. It lies 31 miles south of London, 16 miles north of Brighton, and 32 miles east north east of the county town of Chichester. Nearby towns include Crawley to the north west and Haywards Heath to the south south east.
The name Balcombe may mean "Mining Place Camp". Bal is a Cornish word meaning a mining place as in Bal Maidens, and the same word may have existed in Ancient British Celtic. Although Coombe or Combe can mean a valley, it can also come from the Roman "camp". So possibly from its name Balcombe could have once been a Romano-British mining settlement.
