On 20 October 1853, 30 Gypsy hop-pickers were drowned when the flooding river swept away their wagons as they were crossing Hartlake Bridge near Hadlow. The people of Hadlow decided to erect a memorial to the dead Gypsies in the form of a pyramid-shaped tablet in the corner of the graveyard beneath a yew tree. The names of those who perished are now displayed inside the church doorway. The event was also commemorated in a song.
