Appears this was quite a controversial story (for its time) as money had been given in a grant to create the well, after which it was discovered the water wasn’t fir for drinking!

“At a meeting of Warnham Parish Council at the Village Hall on Thursday week the question of completing the Kingsfold well by kerbing it and supplying a chain and a bucket was discussed.

“In view of the Analyst’s report that the water was unfit for domestic and drkinking purposes it was decided to complete the well and put a notice on it to the effect that the water could be used for domestic purposes but not for drinking.”
