*C+MAWelcome to Springlines – a collaborative project with poet and writer Clare Best and painter Mary Anne Aytoun-Ellis.

We are exploring lesser known water sources in Sussex and all across the South Country, where water has always been scarce and where it is more and more in demand.

We are particularly interested in wells, springs, ponds and underground supplies of water. These are often hidden and mysterious. Some have been revered for hundreds of years. Many have legends, myths and superstitions attached to them. Others are simply beautiful or neglected small natural miracles, often the surprising legacy of earlier industrial sites. All are closely linked to the history and culture of our region. And all have stories to tell.

So we are seeking out these places and their stories, in order to write them, draw and paint them, share them.

If you know of interesting watery places in Sussex, or myths and legends about such places, we’d like to hear from you…
