From the caverns under Glastonbury Tor two natural springs flow a few feet from each other. One is the White Spring named because of the calcium carbonate dissolved in it as it flows through the underlying limestone. This makes for white calcite deposits. The other is the Red Spring (also known as the Chalice Well) because it contains dissolved ferrous oxide (iron). You can see in the photos the Red
Spring water stains the wall red. The Chalice Well is managed by the Chalice Well Trust and is surrounded by beautiful gardens, when I go back to Glastonbury again I hope to visit the gardens. You can get the red spring water outside the gardens, there is a pipe emerging through the garden wall with flowing water, it is opposite the white spring water pipe, both are free to use. I was very happy I brought a bottle with me after doing the Tor earlier in the day, beautiful cold water. It is said it is best to mix 50% white with 50% red. many people say the waters have health properties.
