A Guide to the Chilworth Gunpowder Mills, by Glenys Cocker
Published by the Surrey Industrial History Group in 2005, 20 pages. A5 size booklet (N5245)
The site extends for some 2 kilometres along the Tillingbourne valley. It is well served by footpaths throughout its length and it is crossed by a long-distance path, the Downs Link, which runs from St Martha's Church, on the hill above the gunpowder site, to meet the South Downs Way in Sussex.
This Guide provides a brief outline history of the mills and a summary explanation of the manufacturing processes. It describes the features that can be seen along a route from west of Blacksmith Lane, Chilworth, to Postford Pond and Waterloo Pond in Albury.
The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, and some light nibbling along the edges and corners, but the staple spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover
