The water carrier is reputed to be Mr. King. Some people in Titchfield had their own wells but the water was often not fit to drink. Fareham Rural District Council paid people like Mr King to travel around with a donkey supplying drinking water at one farthing per two gallon bucket of water. The donkey was later replaced by a bigger horse-drawn cart.The notice on the pump read - Any person damaging this pump or wasting the water will be prosecuted. By Order, Rural District. Fareham. Mains water was brought to Titchfield in 1922 and 1923. The village pump was sited on the corner of East Street near its junction with the High Street. Reference:1.
