In the early/late 1950's my fiancee/wife and I strolled around this area. That's if it was here that there was later a tea rooms, which then (became?) a large pub...(?) It was close to the steep hill down from Chipstead pond, and by the viaduct.

The village forge used to stand in Hogscross Lane, Chipstead, in front of the pond nearest to the junction with High Road / White Hill.
It burned down in 1937, the year after after the death of the last blacksmith, William Shurman (1849-1936).
Details courtesy of ChipsteadVillage.Org website, which also has more information on the forge and the blacksmith.
