The photograph of the Furnace Pond in Slaugham was taken from the car park looking along the top of the dam.

By selecting Open Document you can read a passage from the memoirs of Slaugham as recorded by Mrs E. M. Carter (née Kensett) (1893-1951). See picture #204.
In the document the nurse was Amelia Ruth Alma Wareham (1855-1928). In the census return of 1911, which disclosed the residents of the Kensett shop in Slaugham, she was described as “Parish Nurse (Sick)”.
