SW7241 : The Shute

taken 8 years ago, near to Carharrack, Cornwall, Great Britain

The Shute
The Shute
The Shute, on the eponymous Shute Hill, flows non-stop regardless of the level of rainfall. Reputedly it has never been known to dry up. The water is believed to originate from ground water under the mass of Carn Marth, to the west, and is potable. People still come to fill containers from it. In days gone by villagers from Carharrack would come here not just to collect water but also to do the weekly wash. Old photographs show the shute looking just the same as it does now.
