Millpond at Powder Mill Wood, Battle TN33
In 1676 John Hammond was given a grant to build a powder mill on land owned by Battle Abbey. Other mills then sprang up in the area and were said to make the finest gunpowder in Europe, supplying the British Army right up to the Crimean War. The works flourished until 1874, when a number of explosions caused deaths. The pond pictured is in the grounds of Powder Mills Country House Hotel, Powdermill Lane, Battle.
