This article has been adapted from a desk-based assessment, conducted as
part of the MA in Landscape Archaeology at the University of Bristol in
February 2009. The area of study consisted of a 1km2
plot, approximately
1.5km southwest of the village of Burwash. It incorporates the sites of
Burwash Forge (TQ 6631 2313), which lies within the parish of Burwash,
and Wynhamford Mill (TQ 6560 2235), across the parish border in
Brightling. Documentary research has revealed much about the nature of
the industrial activities that took place at these sites in the medieval and
post-medieval periods, and about the families and individuals who were
involved in these enterprises.
