Relics of the Wealden Iron Industry
Helen Pearce

They beautify the woodlands of the Sussex and Kent High Weald, but they were created to power what has been described as the country's first industrial revolution.
Helen Pearce's walker-friendly guide to the rich crop of surviving hammer and furnace ponds in the area traces the history of iron exploitation from pre-Roman times, but concentrates on the 16th and 17th centuries when the Weald throbbed to the sound of trip hammers.
Her attractively illustrated guide includes a complete gazetteer of surviving ponds, with map references and access details, and a list of museums with iron industry displays.
