Malvern spring water

I'm doing a 52 week project this year. This is my shot for Week 3 Liquid.

 

This spring water spout is part of a lovely statue in Malvern in Worcestershire.

This is what is says on the plaque next to it.....

 

This drinking spout of pure Malvern water is piped directly from three springs above the Town at Happy Valley, Rushey Valley and Ivy Scar Rock. The water is thought to come from so deep down that underground pressure forces it upwards, filtering it through the Ancient Malvern stone of the hills which remove any impurities.

 

Since at least Medieval times Malvern Spring Water has been highly valued for it's purity and health giving properties. In Victorian times the town grew quickly with the fame of its water, regarded as being so pure that it contained 'nothing at all'.
