    Thanks for posting this spring. I managed to find the source and collected enough water for several days. It was springing from a few areas close together and was flowing quite strong and beautifully clean and clear. It was a wonderful experience and I really enjoyed collecting and drinking the water 🙂
    The Shepherd & Dog Pub collect the water from the roadside outlet and use it for making their own beer.
    Thanks again!

    I went earlier today for the first time having seen a couple filling up their Jerry cans last weekend at the mouth of the Spring. Just the adventure to find the source was quite magical. Wellies definitely needed! Just took a small sample, but what a rare treat. Thank you Raw Chef for posting your video… I will come again. This will make a huge difference to my health and lifestyle!

    Awesome. Thank you.

  4. I was born on Perching Sands Farm, just up the road from Fulking… long time since I’ve been there, but know it well.

    Great water!
    I would recommend walking to find the source rather than collecting from the roadside.
    We went today to discover a walker was obviously a little desparate and had left a pile of poo in edge of the water at one of the points where the spring bubbles out of the ground and a pile of messy tissues! Not so nice…
    We did tidy the area up but is good reason to find the source and not trust the roadside stream!

    Hi. thanks for great sharing.   Is it really possible I will be able to get some REAL
    clean water, no strings attached.

    I am so pleased if this is so.  I am always troubled about the quality of he water from the kitchen tap.

    Hey guys- is it difficult to find the source? Any tips on locating it? 🙂

    I am so grateful to you for posting this. I have been wanting to find good spring water for years around this area, and always travel miles to get healthy mineralised water. The sign, Do Not Drink at the pub has always put me off, and so your effort to bring the truth to light is very much appreciated. We went today and filled up, and agree with you, this is our life blood. We start writing a book today, so really feel IN THE FLOW!

    We have been going there for a few months now, filling up every time enough to last a couple of weeks. Its a great place to go and the water is great. I use it even for cooking!
    Just go there if you live around Brighton and look for the trail!…

    Took family to find and collect some spring water today and had a great fun time. Found the spring by going through the pub garden onto foot path and after about 100m drop down a steep path through bushes. Seems like great water!

  12. don’t know its a secret where the water is. you go to the back of the pub garden, through the gate. turn right walk along. there is a path on the right that slopes down a little steep. walk down. there are 3 running steams first left, middle and right. the middle one is the easiest to access but I recommend wearing wellies and also taking a smaller water bottle to fill up like an evian sized one as the amount of water comes it is a smallish hole.

    Found the spring today!

    It’s not too too much of a walk at all, if you’re at the pub it’s 3 mins.

    Navigate to the rear of the tarmac pub car park. Here is a small sign up against a hedge sign posted “public footpath”.

    It’s narrow and uneven and brings you out onto another narrow footpath at the top overloooking fields. Turn right. About 20 yards on your right is a opening in the tree line.

    Down the bank are some make shift mud steps, through the trees and you’re there.

    There’s evidence of an old pumping machine there but the water bubbles up beautifully.

    It’s clear, cold and tastes fantastic….

    There’s signs of people leaving their tribute to Mother Earth, which is beautiful, but if you do see signs of neglect or ageing offerings, please help by clearing away anything spoiling this quiet secluded treat!
