"SEPTIMA COTTAGE", FULKING, WEST
"SEPTIMA COTTAGE", which was built in the 15th century, was named after Ann Septima
Cuttress who later married Benjamin Jesse Baldey on 6th Feb. 1858. She lived in this cottage for 80 years from the age
of six. Ann had 15 children including Beatrice Baldey born 24th Nov. 1877. Beatrice West nee Baldey was my maternal
John Ruskin one of the greatest figures of the Victorian age artist, art critic,
conversationist, English author, philosopher, poet and scientist was quite often seen in Fulking and it is believed that he
liked to see the sunsets there. Among his many talents was that of a geologist and his help and advice was sought by
some of his friends in the village regarding harnessing the Fulking water supply. Fulking's very existence is due to
the spring at the end of the village street which is said to never have run dry. Ruskin helped and advised the villagers
and in the mid 1800s the spring was harnessed to provide Fulking with its own piped water supply and the pump house and ram
pump by the side of the road were part of the "set up" in use until 1953 when a new supply system was provided for the village.
On the side of the pump house on Victorian tiles are the words: 'HE SENDETH
SPRINGS INTO THE VALLEY WHICH RUN AMONG THE HILLS, OH THAT MEN WOULD PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS GOODNESS' which came from Psalms
104 & 107.
THE SPRING AND PUMP HOUSE.
Also in the village there is a small commemorative fountain with the words, sadly no long readable:
'TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN HONOR OF JOHN RUSKIN PSALM LXXVIII THAT THEY MIGHT SET THEIR HOPE IN GOD AND
NOT FORGET BUT KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS WHO BROUGHT STREAMS ALSO OUT OF THE ROCK'.
The fountain was erected by a local brewer.
"THE SHEPHERD & DOG".
"The Shepherd & Dog" public house at the western end of the villages is a popular venue year round for
locals and visitors to the district.
THE "SHEPHERD & DOG".
In the Post Office Directories of 1905, 1913 and 1915 Charles Baldey was named as the publican of the "Shepherd
& Dog" public house in Fulking and in the 1918 edition of the Directory Mrs. Maria Baldey was named as the publican.
In a letter in a newspaper sent by an Uncle of mine, Harry West, it stated that "my Uncle Charlie and Rhoda
were mine hosts of the "Shepherd & Dog" public house for many years until their deaths between the wars".
