The hamlet of Furner’s Green lies on the southern edge of Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, the South of England. Furner’s Green is located some 14km north-west of Uckfield and is just an 11km distance from Haywards Heath. The towns of Horsham, East Grinstead, Burgess Hill and Lewes are all within a comfortable driving distance.
The hamlet was once involved in the iron industry and iron works were already mentioned in official documents as far back as 1580, but Furner’s Green was also an important site for corn grinding. Sheffield Mill’s site would have made use of the various watercourses available at that time, as the River Ouse traverses the Ashdown Forest landscape. A hammer and mill forge for example derived its energy from waterwheels. Early wool mills would have also made use water-power at that time.
Early factories, no matter what they produced for local industry, would have been very noisy and people would have eventually lost their hearing, having to put up with the din of machinery every day of their lives, often for more than 12 hours a day. Workers employed in the textile industry had to breathe in dust of the cotton and wool spun in their factories, while people employed in steel and iron works had to work in extremely hot conditions and breathe in oil and soot and coal dust.
Modern factories in Britain have thankfully changed a lot and anyone asked to work in conditions that are detrimental to their health can claim compensation from their employer. A Furner’s Green manufacturing site ignoring health and safety legislation would soon find itself at the mercy of an accident solicitor in Furner’s Green making a personal injury claim on their client’s behalf.
