Blotting House

Members of the society enjoyed a walk around Chithurst , just over a week ago, despite it being a slightly wet day , but warm it was enjoyed by all, on our visit to Iping we came across the name on a house called Blotting House., Plus another called the Mill house, and yes the mill did make blotting paper. According to Stidder and Smith -
Watermills of Sussex, in the late 19th century white and colored blotting
paper was made on a single 60 inch machine. It looks as if blotting paper
was made there until the mills were destroyed by fire in 1925.more information click here
