Chalice Well Gardens
This is a picture of the Chalice Well Gardens in Glastonbury at ST5038 : The "Red" or "Blood" Well. The water has a very high iron content it turns anything that comes into contact with the water for any length of time a distinctive rust colour. It also gives the water a distinctive metallic edge to the taste. The chalice wells have been a place of pilgrimage for centuries, the earliest documented reference to the well is in 1210AD. The gardens are run by a trust and are dedicated to quiet contemplation and reflection. LinkExternal link
