Nutbourne Brickworks, Hambledon

Historic building recording by S Wallis of TVAS. The remains of the former brickworks that had closed in 1990 and had remained derelict for some time were recorded prior to their demolition. It was noted that many of the features of possible industrial archaeological interest had already been salvaged and removed from the site.

Mare Hill, Witley

Geophysical survey by T Munnery of SCAU as part of the Wealden Glass Project. Evidence for possible terracing of the site was visible, and moderate responses were recorded through the geophysical survey, but the results were inconclusive and artefactual material suggested the possibility that it might be the site of limeburning rather than glassworking.

Bowbrooks, Chiddingfold

Geophysical survey by T Munnery of SCAU as part of the Wealden Glass Project. Two fields were investigated, and while an unequivocal location for a glassworking furnace could not be defined, the eastern of the two fields demonstrated significantly higher magnetic anomalies than the western. This evidence, coupled with the field name on the 1803 tithe map ('Glasse Field'), appears to outline the location of the glass furnace workings.

Imbhams Farm, Chiddingfold

Geophysical survey and fieldwalking by T Munnery of SCAU as part of the Wealden Glass Project. Two areas of potential interest were identified, one of which provided conclusive evidence of glassworking in the form of large quantities of manufacturing debris and waste, and the likely location of the furnace itself.
