“Dowsing is an ancient art, it’s been around for millennia, and it’s used all over the world for different purposes, through to the water board engineer trying to find a water leak,” said Andrew.

“Dowsing is basically an intuitive process. You can use rods or pendulums as an instrument, as an indicator. You can simply make your own rods, you can buy them. You can go to groups and learn how to do it, you can read books but the fundamental thing is you need to practice and you need to trust yourself that you can do it.”
