Bob Rowland at Furzefield
Bob Rowland has lived in Fulking since the days when John Ruskin single-handedly installed pumped water, mains drainage, gas lighting and an electric telegraph system. Over the ensuing decades he has done everything, run everything and won everything. Nowadays he passes on his accumulated wisdom to junior villagers in a monthly column for this website. This page provides an anthology of those columns.
