St Ann's Well, Buxton

As I'm away for a while, Pamela from Tenerife is posting a series of photographs from the environs of Hyde rather than the town itself.

You can buy bottled Buxton Spring Water or you can collect it yourself by visiting St Ann's Well in the town.

Buxton is about half an hour's drive south of Hyde either by way of Glossop, Hayfield, Chapel-en-le-Frith and Doveholes or via Marple, New Mills and the Long Hill by the Goyt Valley.

Often there are queues of people filling all kinds of bottles. The well was been flowing for centuries. A byelaw prohibts a charge being made for the water, but bottling firms can charge for bottling and delivery.

Buxton is a great place, I'd love to see some pictures of the "well dressing".

Gerald does have a photo of the well dressing here somewhere. I'll see if I can find a link, if not I am sure he will find it when he returns Curly.
