Sinking a Well at Little Hampton
A contract with the Board of Ordnance is being carried out by Mr. Edward Corney for the supply of spring water to the military fort at Little Hampton. Seven iron caissons of 3 feet 6 inches diameter and 5 foot lengths, are being sunk, from which boring will be adapted, to receive 12 inch tubular iron, to the depth of 71 feet 8 inches, and if necessary, to be carried lower. At the depth already penetrated to the 9th inst. viz 26 feet the indication is promising.
