Balsdean Cottages
The small hamlet of Balsdean now consists of a farm, these four cottages and a pumping station in the valley below. Once a populous but remote hamlet based around two farms and possessing its own chapel which was built in the 12th century and survived as a farm outbuilding up to the Second World War when all the buildings in the hamlet were reduced to rubble by the Canadian Artillery using them as target practice. The cottages were rebuilt after the war and moved out of the valley to this position.
