There is a fascinating corner of the Cotswold’s in Compton Abdale with a very unusual spring, which a respected builder from the nearby village of Hazleton built from Cotswold Stone in the 19th Century. Presumably some local landowner paid for it. The feature is shaped like a crocodile’s head and the spring water has been gushing out of the crocodile’s mouth ever since. Some days after lots of heavy rain, it is a truly spectacular sight.
I wish I could capture the sound of the pure rushing water for you but my photos will have to do.
I marvel at the fact that nature produces a constant supply of fresh water for us here. Would that other parts of the world were so lucky.
