8 9 In the late eighteenth century William Cookworthy of Plymouth, England gave the art a shot in the arm by chronicling the undeniable talents of the Cornish mining dowsers. They had earned their reputation purely by the accurate results they had produced for that very tough industry, and had begun to be rewarded accordingly. For a time local people who could just do it were used to find water sources, but gradually some eminent Victorian British and Irish geologists became aware of the growing water needs of industry and the larger estates. One of the greatest practitioners of all time was Wiltshires John Mullins. The legendary stories of his successes probably did more to make dowsing acceptable in the right circles than any contemporary academic papers. In 1912 the mighty Metallica was translated from Latin to English by Mining Magazine in London, and sparked a fresh interest for many lateral thinkers of all disciplines. Then, in 1969, Guy Underwoods The Patterns of the Past broke new ground by exploring in meticulous detail the energies of sacred sites and their connections with water illustrations opposite. In 1976 Tom Lethbridges The Power of the Pendulum explored other realities and in 1978 their work and the perceptions of John Michell inspired Tom Graves to write Needles of Stone, a dowsing book which introduced farreaching concepts of our relationship with earth and cosmic energies. practItIONerS excitement reborn Three surveys by Guy Underwood showing i. aquastats in Winchester Cathedral, ii.
