Please rate this spring

This natural spring is at the end of the lane that leads north-west from Whitecross to Collorian on the left just before entering the farm. It consists of a stone lined hollow in a bank with a steady flow of water issuing from it and flooding a considerable plot of ground in front of the spring, making access difficult. There are a few shaped stones lying about but the spring is surrounded by lush vegetation and many remaining stones could be partly buried and hidden. This was primarily a curative chalybeate spring, and has no dedication, although there was once a chapel of St Thomas nearby. Next to an old dilapidated iron gate. The spring itself is a gushing flow which can be heard when you’re nearby. Ordnance Survey Map “Land’s End” 1:25 000, grid ref – 523 347

    Found spring quite easily, asked a local who said it was private. Is this holy water? Am going to test it. Will also test for arsenic. Thankyou
