13th Jun 1844HistoryAt Forest Fold ChapelForest Fold History
 In those dark days there resided in the Neighbourhood, at Old Buckhurst, a comparatively young man, Mr Doggett by name, who had come from Norfolk. One night his rest was broken by a dream, in which Crowborough Forest appeared to him as a great roaring sea .... in a certain spot appeared a lighthouse ..... the dream made such an impression that he felt it to be an indication of the will of God to establish the preaching of the gospel in that spot where, in his dream, the lighthouse appeared to stand ..... on this spot he found an od barn .... had it licensed as a place of worship .... still forms the walls of Forest Fold Chapel
