The Parish Council have addressed this many times - as it is actually in Southwick Parish we have been told to leave it; tried to get a grant for it, but nothing happened. Dreadful shame; a gentleman in the village, four or five years ago, started to tidy it up and was told to leave it alone, as he was trespassing,  by a quite aggresive gamekeeper.  My father was born in a cottage above the Spa (no longer in existence), and during droughts (yes, they had them 120 years ago as well) they used to drink the iron water; he made me try it, as a child and it was foul, tasted like ink! but apparently has incredible medicinal properties.

Totally agree - what are you doing, wandering far and wide to take photos?

I remember walking to the Spa as a child on a sunday evening and hearing all about the properties of the water - never been tempted to try any though!  I can remember it being "restored" sometime ago but I guess it hasn't been looked after since.  It's a shame that it's fallen into disrepair and that people don't want others to try and do something to improve it.  Perhaps Southwick Parish Council might like to try!

Southwick have a Parish Meeting, not a Parish Council as such, which makes it more difficult - and it isn't exactly on their back door step.  Don't suppose they are particularly interested, but if you know anyone in Southwick, maybe some interest good be drummed up?

The horsewater.
This is another place that seems to be in a poor state.This is in our parish and maybe after the birds have finished nesting and the plants have died down in the winter,we could get a working party to do something about cleaning it out.
