Canal Cottage on Nutfield Marsh has a name which stands as a reminder of various canal schemes  but it was  built in the late 17th century though modified later. These canal schemes had in common that they would have passed through the marshes in the north of Nutfield Parish and through the marshy area we now know as Redhill. From thence The Weald could be reached by following the brook which meanders through Earlswood dodging the hills of the Lower Greensand. But it was all too near the railway age and these canal schemes never came to fruition
