About the location
Henfield 3 miles; Brighton 6 miles; Worthing 9 miles.
Fulking is a lovely Sussex village located in the South Downs National Park and dating back to just after the Norman invasion in 1066. There is a quaint country pub just outside the village called "The Shepherd and Dog" beside which is a spring, due to the constant flow of water from the chalk strata a small steam rises and travels uphill. The stream eventually flows out into a public tap and horsetrough, above which is a tiled inscription with a psalm in honour of John Ruskin a Victorian writer and philanthropist, definatley worth looking out for when visiting Fulking. Several of the houses in this Sussex village date back to the 1600s with a lot of them are half timbered. However Fulking is best known for it's beautiful countryside and proximity within the South Downs National Park. This is the perfect choice for walking and riding, whether by horse or cycle, with stunning views to admire as you stroll. Why not pack a picnic and enjoy a day of fresh air, flora and fauna. Devil's Dyke is no doubt the most famous part of this area, and there are many myths and legends regarding how this deep valley came about. Some said it was from the devil digging a trench to allow the sea to flood the land when he was disturbed he then fled leaving his trench unfinished and throwing the last shovel of earth over his shoulder which fell into the sea and formed the Isle of Wight. This part of Sussex offers visitors lots of towns and villages to explore each with their own special attraction. With Brighton it's beaches and shopping, a day investigating "The Lanes" stopping for a coffee and a spot of people watching, Glyndbourne famous for it's opera festival held in the grounds and where people dress up and bring a picnic. Shoreham has it's airport which is the UK's oldest licensed airport still in operation and has even been used as a filming location for scenes from Poirot, Tenko and The Da Vinci Code to name a few. Spend a week in Sussex and explore the world!
