024.02 This is a well known spring. It issues from a freestone rock on the banks of the Avon, and is remarkable for the slowness with which it drops out of the rock. Its principal ingredient is said to be sulphur and its taste and smell are like rotten eggs. It is well known to physicians in the country for its mineral properties. The country people commonly call it the mineral well. There are two places, within a few feet of each other, from which the water drops - they are too close to show separately.
