A CHANCE TO IMPROVE THE ACCURACY OF YOUR DOWSING

Dowsing tangible targets is an important way to build confidence, and improve the accuracy of your dowsing. Dowsing wells, springs, drains, pipes and cables may not rock your boat, but if you wish to improve the accuracy of your dowsing come along on the 27th October at 10.00am to the Water and Utilities Workshop near Tiverton. Serious fun is guaranteed.

Tea, coffee, and biscuits (please bring your own “free from” items) will be provided, but bring your own lunch, drinking water, wellies, and water proofs, as inclement weather will not stop us. There is a toilet on site. See the previous post for directions.

DOWSING WATER AND UTILITIES – Saturday 27th October near Tiverton.  See Post below.

Dowsing tangible targets is a really important way to build confidence and accuracy with your dowsing.

Come along on the 27th October to Steve’s land near Tiverton, where there will be an opportunity to dowse for flowing water in a pipe, static water in a pipe, water leaks, sewage pipes, land drains, mole drains, armoured electric cable, and other electric cables.

You will also be able to dowse for shallow wells and dowse for a water source, which will mean searching for the most appropriate location to get potable water, to dowse the predicted yield, the pH, and depth of the blind springs.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but bring your own lunch and water. We can provide dowsing rods if you don’t have any.

Having attended the day you will be able to confidently find your own utilities, as well as those of friends should the need arise. You will also be able to locate water.

FURTHER DETAILS FOR OUR VISIT TO St. NECTAN’S GLEN & AREA this Saturday 18th August

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

ST. NECTAN’S GLEN & WATERFALLS, ROCKY VALLEY and BOSCASTLE this Saturday 18th August 2018

Just a reminder that we are meeting in the ‘Waterfall’ car park at Trethevy at 10am on the main coast road (A3263) between Boscastle and Bossiney, near Tintagel. The car park is on the ‘sea’ side of the road and is signposted. The post code for the Glen is PL34 0BE.

If you haven’t already paid, entrance money (£5.35 for those under pension age, £4.70 for concessions) will be collected at the start. It would be helpful if you have the correct money.

Walking left out of the car park, the path for the Glen and Waterfall is a few yards on your right opposite the bus stop on the left.   The walk is about a mile in length and at the beginning you will see St Piran’s Holy Well and the church of St. Piran. Take the path to the right of the church down to the Glen and waterfall. Notice the ancient stone in the wall on your right just past the church.

As the path is stony, and can be muddy and slippery on the steps, make your own way carefully down the Glen. Please wear sensible footwear, and if you want to see the waterfall you will need wellingtons. Walking poles may be useful too. They have a small supply of wellingtons at the shop which can be borrowed.

‘The Cabin’, their new café, serves a range of freshly prepared hot food, soup, sandwiches, cream teas, drinks, ices, cakes etc. It might be sensible to give them notice if you require a hot meal. As it will be mid morning most of us will have a coffee and then wander back to the car park for our own food at lunchtime.

Around 2.30pm we will walk or drive the short distance to visit Rocky Valley to see the carved labyrinths and attempt to age them. Turn right out of the car park and the entrance to Rocky Valley is about half a mile on your right by Trevillet Mill. There is a lay-by opposite for parking for a few cars otherwise it is fine to leave your car where it is and walk, but take great care on the bends.

At approx. 4.30pm we plan to have a look around Boscastle meeting at the entrance to the large car park at the back of the village.

Remember to bring your rods and pendulums, and cameras to hopefully capture some Orbs.

See www.st-nectansglen.co.uk and www.nationaltrust.org.uk/rocky-valley-walk

Members are reminded that attendance at Devon Dowsers outdoor events, for them and their guests, is at their own risk.

OUR TRIP TO ST. NECTAN’s GLEN, ROCKY VALLEY & BOSCASTLE – 18th August

OUR TRIP TO ST. NECTAN’s GLEN, ROCKY VALLEY & BOSCASTLE

Saturday 18th August starting at 10am

Thank you to those of you who have already put your names down for our trip to St. Nectans Glen and area on Saturday 18th August.

There is a change to the entry price as they now offer a reduced price of £4.70 for Pensioners which is cheaper than the group rate.  So we have therefore decided that Pensioners will pay £4.70 which at the present time does not leave enough people to get our discounted group rate.  Hopefully numbers will increase before the day and we will be eligible for the discounted rate of £5.35, otherwise I’m afraid the full price of £5.95 will be charged.

There is plenty to see – a new woodland walk and two more waterfalls plus a new café and shop.

If you would like to join us please let us know by contacting us via the Contact Page on this website or phoning 01626 867451 and leaving a message. Payment can be made on the day.

Our plans re camping and ‘staying over’ have also changed too and we will not be doing that now as nearby camp sites are full, many have a two night minimum stay in August and of course prices are at their peak.  So we will now just be going for the day meeting at the car park (between Boscastle and Tintagel) at 10am to arrive at the waterfall at 10.30am when it should be quiet.

More detailed directions will be available nearer the time.

You will need wellingtons to see the waterfall and a camera to capture orbs (hopefully).

Dowsing for Water in the United Arab Emirates

Dowsing for Water in the United Arab Emirates

Most of you will be aware of all the press and radio coverage that the PhD student – Sally Le Page received when she publicised the fact that 10 out of 12 of our Water Boards have staff that use dowsing rods to find pipes and leaks. This came as no surprise to dowsers, as it can be a very quick way to identify where the errant pipe and escaping water is!

Something that wasn’t in the national press is that our very own Peter Taylor has had great success Dowsing for Water in the United Arab Emirates, a country that has minimal rainfall.

Peter received the initial request in September 2016, so he started with a ‘Google Earth map survey’ of the area and marked out all potential sources of water. His next step was to visit the area, for 2 weeks in October 2016, when 12 potential water sources in the area were located by dowsing.

Peter says that “Water is so scarce in these hot countries with very little rainfall, everyone is searching for it and that the water table is shrinking because more water is being extracted than is being replaced by natural seepage and rainfall”. In the area Peter was working, the rock formations are mostly old limestone and the water table varies from 850ft to 1600ft, or more; “the mountain regions are covered with small villages and towns, all of which have many boreholes drilled chasing the elusive water”.

2 wells were subsequently drilled in 2017 and have both passed all the required tests by the UAE authorities. The largest well is producing 244,800 gallons per day – an excellent flow for that part of the world, the second well produces 57,600 gallons per day.

Perhaps we could offer a PhD course in Water Divining??? :0)       Well done Peter!

Thinking of joining Devon Dowsers?

Dowsing is a means of searching, not using our normal senses, and can be done on site as well as remotely (e.g. map and information dowsing). It is an ethical activity used for the greater good. Devon Dowsers welcomes those who have a fascination for this ancient art, and who wish to share their experiences with other open-minded members.

We always welcome new members, so please see our current programme  and come to a meeting to check us out. To learn more,  get in touch through our contact form. We’d love to hear from you.

DFEST

23 & 24 June 2018

South Zeal, Devon

As the nights draw in and winter approaches, we can look back to June’s sunshine and reflect on the success of DFest, the first South West Dowsing Festival. Over 100 people attended and used the evaluation form to share how much they had enjoyed the weekend. It was a chance to dowse at some of Dartmoor’s iconic sites, to listen to engaging speakers, and to attend fascinating Dowsing Workshops.

A digital souvenir report is available HERE and under the Activities menu. We hope this will provide you with enjoyable memories and provide inspiration with your dowsing throughout the winter months.
