The place is about three kilometers south of Wareham and five kilometers west of Corfe Castle (place) and Corfe Castle and about twelve kilometers southwest of the large cities of Poole and Bournemouth .
Furzebrook became the center of the clay industry . The local deposits of Purbeck Ball Clay , a clay mineral , were mined there, processed through repeated turning for six months and mixed with other types of clay to give them more plasticity. In the vicinity of Furzebrook there were several narrow-gauge railways , including the Furzebrook Railway , which led into the mines and clay pits in the area. When the Wareham-Swanage branch line of the London and South Western Railway was built, it was passed through Furzebrook, so that the Purbeck Ball Clay could be transported over this route.
Furzebrook is now the station for the removal of the oil from the nearby Wytch Farm oil field.
