Bolnore Village is the housing estate of several thousand homes built by Crest Nicholson off Isaacs Lane, between Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill,
The estate, which is newly built since 2000, is designed to be like a village and has narrow, twisting roads which dissuade fast driving.
The Co-op store is situated in the village square, at the heart of the network of residential roads, with a car park in front of it.
The small parade of shops, of which it forms the main part, is surrounded on all sides by two and three storey buildings with their windows looking down on to the square. Bolnore Primary School is also nearby.
