Site of Stone Furnace and Forge (2)
The low levels of the Weir Wood Reservoir have dropped enough to reveal the location of a former 16th century Wealden furnace. The former pond bay, now covered in silt, ran across the valley floor breached only by the River Medway at the point where it turns 90 degrees. The working area was on the northern side. The small shaw on the opposite bank was known as Cinder bank Shaw on the 1841 East Grinstead tithe map. See also TQ3834 : Site of Stone Furnace and Forge (1).
