Chilworth had wartime gunpowder mills, powered by damming the Tilling Bourne. A walk takes you past the remaining industrial relics.
"Chilworth Gunpowder works was established in 1625 by the East India Company and finally closed in 1920. It was worked by a number of private companies and became an important supplier of gunpowder to the Government. A significant number of buildings from the gunpowder factory can still be found. The buildings and area are now partially looked after by Guildford Borough Council and English Heritage".
