The sulphur build up in the spout
The trickle of healing water from the Holy Spring

Add captiOne of the flooded fields at Godney Mooron
A fine sunny start to the day so I took off down to the Burtle and Westhay moor area. Dawdled along at 25-30 mph once I got out onto the secluded lanes.
Unusual to see how the road surface in some places stood 2 or 3 feet above the level of the fields. Many of the roads were made by laying down bundles of faggots and then surfacing over the top of them.
Good to see that the rains of the previous month had boosted the flow at the Holy Spring at Edington. Quite a good trickle of water again. Not quite so sulphurous but the deposit still builds up in the spout. Odd how the folks are still getting fooled by the Challis Well at Glastonbury. Collinson exposed that as a fake over 200 years ago.
Took the opportunity to go along to Meare and get pix of the Abbots Fish House. Then across Godney moor where some of the fields were still flooded from the rains of the previous week. The signs were still in place at the road verges advising drivers of the floods.
