This well is really good. A nicely situated well, with warmish water trickling down . Come and see it. Join a small queue and take water away in a bottle. Free of charge Buxton spring water. Nice site, well worth a visit.

The local history books say this water has been taken for hundreds of years. I think it's fantastic that it is still available for everyone to enjoy. Let's keep it that way - we had some and loved it.

The water can be a little warm - and like most spa waters it can be a little radioactive. This is due to the rocks over time it passes through.
