Fulking is a village and civil parish in the Mid Sussex District of West Sussex, England. It is located on the north slopes of the South Downs, five miles (8 km) to the north-west of Brighton. The civil parish covers an area of 628.31 hectares (1,552.6 acres).
There is a country pub just outside the village, the "Shepherd and Dog" and beside it a spring, where the constant flow of water from the chalk strata gives rise to a small stream. Travelling uphill from the stream there is a public tap and horsetrough at the beginning of the street, with a tiled inscription from a psalm in honour of John Ruskin.
