Listing Text

5404 Hammer Pond Guest House
(formerly listed as
Hammer Pond Cottages)
TQ 22 NW 13/256 22.9.59.


This building was originally a forge or forges used in connection with the
iron industry, for which Sussex was famous before coal was much used as a
fuel. It stands on the edge of 2 very large hammer ponds. It has subsequently
been used as several cottages but is now one house. Half H-shaped C17 or
earlier timber-framed building. The centre is fronted with red brick on the
ground floor and weather-boarding above. Two storeys, 3 windows. The north-west
wing has the timbering exposed at the north end with brick infilling, but
its inner wall is all brick, colour-washed. One storey and attic with dormer
windows in hip end of roof. The south-east wing is probably later and is
all brick except the first floor on south side. Gable at north-east end of
wing. Two storey, one window. Horsham slab roof to the whole. Casement
windows. Three doorways with sloping hoods of Horsham slabs.
