    I tried to locate this spring but couldn't find it. Has anyone been to this spring? Is it right by the road?

  3. Eric Butler says:

    I’ve been there several times. It’s right next to the road. If you can’t find it, ask someone in town. They will know where it is.

    although I am No way an expert I do know that the little bunch of green that is growing under the spigot is water cress and it doesn’t grow unless the water is clean.

    What I would like to know is whether or not the water is affected by pollution due to fertilizer run-off, as there is clearly a cultivated field in the background. Also, what type of metal are the pipes made of? They are very old, the spring has been around for quite some time, so we can only hope that there no errosion of toxic materials, as pipes weren’t always made of sound materials in the past.
