Today I meet up with Chris from The Hairy Wanderers Youtube Channel to explore the Chilworth Gunpowder Factory in Surrey, about 3 miles south east of Guildford.
Chilworth Gunpowder works was established in 1625 by the East India Company and finally closed in 1920. It was worked by a number of private companies, and became an important supplier of gunpowder to the Government. A significant number of buildings belonging to the gunpowder factory can still be found. The buildings and area are now partially looked after by Guildford Borough Council and English Heritage. The gunpowder works are listed as a scheduled monument.
