A little history of Horsmonden - Rather surprisingly, Horsmonden has been a main centre for three different major industries: The Cloth trade, Gun-founding and Hops.
The village was an important centre of the medieval iron industry and Furnace Pond is one of the largest and finest of the artificial lakes made to provide water power for the iron works. King Charles I visited the foundry in 1638 to watch a cannon being cast – a bronze four-pounder, forty-two inches long, now preserved in the Tower of London’s White Tower.
