Historical records

1790HistoryGun InnEeles' Frant
Guns were undoubtedly cast at Eridge Furnace and in the 18th century one of these stood outside the Gun Inn at Eridge Green and … in a journal in 1790 the following account appears
"(it) now lies at Eridge Green and has served for many years for the amusement of the people on a holiday or fair-day, when they collect money to buy gunpowder to threw the shell to a hill about a mile distant. The weight of the shell sinks so deep into the earth, that is costs no little pains to dig it out after each discharge, which is repeated as long as the money lasts."
