Chilworth, on the Gunpowder Mills Trail
Old mill wheels set alongside the path which runs past the wartime remains of Chilworth Gunpowder Mills which were powered using water from the Tilling Bourne.
"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".
