Slaugham Furnace Pond (2 of 11)

The photographer has taken this artificially-tinted picture from the Lower Beeding Parish side of the Slaugham Furnace Pond looking towards Furnace Pond Cottage and the adjacent crossroads with its fingerpost.
It is remarkable how devoid of trees and shrubs the car parking area was then. Conversely, those living at Furnace Pond Cottage would have had a splendid view of the pond, which they do not now have.
The Large Version shows a similar view of Furnace Pond Cottage from the top end of the pond.
In about 1950, Mrs Ena Tulley (1897-1973), wife of Ralph Tulley from the Post Office stores in Handcross, wrote of her childhood memories living at Bosworths on Slaugham Green including some relating to the Furnace Pond.

Furnace Pond
The picture of Furnace Pond Cottage seems to have white weatherboarding on the walls where they now have tiles. Fashion I suppose.
