Horsted KeynesHorsted Keynes
is a small village in West Sussex
about 5 miles from Haywards Heath centered around the Village Green, its pubs, village store and the Church. The Railway Station, three-quarters of a mile from the village, is now owned and operated by the Bluebell Railway
, which is run largely by volunteers and operates using vintage steam trains.
The area was known for its iron industry long before the industrial revolution and the coming of the railways. Nothing remains of this now, except for the hammer ponds and other traces of this activity dotted around the surrounding countryside.
