Here is an article written by Mike Wall, who retains the copyright, on the agricultural machinery works set up by Canning who owned Finchdean House in the nineteenth century.  This defined Finchdean for a century but its existence is now hard to trace save for the Forge on the Green. 

As is so often the case, the site is now predominantly residential.
