    I live about 6 miles from St. Annes Well in Buxton and I have used only this water for drinking and cooking for over 5 years. Through my research on the internet, this water fell as rain many thousands of years ago and comes naturally I am told from possibly 18,000 to 20,000 feet down. There have been many chemical analyses done of the water but the main thing is that there are no ‘Modern – Day’ chemicals in the water ! There are so many people who go to collect the water – you get to know them over time ! May the water keep flowing and we hope and pray that the ‘commercial interests’ who are taking over the supply of Buxton Water do not do anything to disturb the natural flow of this wonderful water which is ‘free of charge’ to those who want to collect it.

    Visited the spring today to get 32 liters. I live about 30 miles away but it’s worth it for the benefits I’ve been learning about recently.
    We’ve gotta nourish our bodies with structured water that’s full of the earths frequencies to tune ourselves back in to nature. It is 2012 after all, we must start unplugging ourselves from the matrix! Haha

    Here are few videos I’ve watched recently… – This channel is FULL of amazing inspirational videos about healthy living, by a really fun couple called Matt and Angela. They are a vital part of my diet and should be part of your too 🙂

    Went to the spring today to fill some water bottles while we were on holiday in the area.

    Unfortunately the spring is not flowing! There’s some building work going on nearby, which may be related, but may not be! Regardless there is no water to be had at this point in time (hopefully others will be luckier!)
