"Highgate Works" was originally the site yard of the well-known H&E Waters building company whose business failed in 1991. The original roof-lines of the old ramshackle yard, half a mile south of the two Forest Row roundabouts, have been retained in a complete rebuilding of the old timber structures that survived for most of the twentieth century. The three-dimensional architects “axonometric” drawing on our website gives some idea of the attractive development.

The "Boiler Room" is a secure small internal room advertised here for storage only. The room is newly decorated and fitted with power points and light. If required as an office the monthly cost would be higher to cover estimated power consumption and car parking. The building is rated by the Wealden District Council for B1 use: “B1 Business - Offices (other than those that fall within A2), research and development of products and processes, light industry appropriate in a residential area.”
