  1. This was really easy to find and helped by good access through plenty of parking spaces.
    It was encouraging to see local kids filling up their bottles too.

  2. I’ve been collecting and drinking this water for about 5 or 6 years. It’s the best water I’ve tasted (except when I go to Glastonbury and fill up with both white and red spring water!) No idea of the pH but I highly recommend it 🙂

  3. In would roll my eyes when my mum would send us to fill our bottles lol I’ve drunk from this spring all my life, I’ve never tasted better! Art I wonder if that was me you spoke too! Lots of Ley lines here 🙂

  4. Thanks to this marvelous site I was able to find the spring which I have lived close to for many, many years. I can’t recall how many times I’ve driven past; oblivious to its presence. I guess if your not looking a lot of things in life are missed!
    It’s just opposite the Coop, down hill a little on the opposite side of the road.
    The water comes from a lions head fountain which is fitted into a brick pillar. Theirs a plaque which states:

    ERECTED BY: HENRY SMITH 1860

    Theirs also a notice from the Gt. Bardfield parish council; which states:

    ADVISORY NOTICE
    THE SOURCE OF THE WATER FROM THE FOUNTAIN IS AN HISTORIC SPRING, AND NOT INTENDED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. Oops!

    Well all I can say is I consumed it and it tasted fantastic.
    I met a local young lady at the fountain also filling bottles and she informed me she had drank the very same water all her life and thoroughly enjoyed it. She also mentioned there are many ley-lines in the vicinity. So perhaps the water has some mystical or spiritual properties? But that’s another another story!

    BTW: I’ve got some pix but unsure how to upload them; will mail them to ‘findaspring’

  5. Hi all!
    The spring is located opposite co-op shop on the main road so u can’t miss it. I took about 30 liters of water yesterday and I’m drinking it now without any reactions. I checked also TDS (total disolve solids) count with my meter which is 345. Please share your comments with this spring. cheers
