Courthouse Main Flood Rising

The Main Flood Rising for the Courthouse stream emerges from a low rocky bluff on the south side of the Cwm.
The Courthouse stream can be followed up from the junction with the Ilston Cwm Stream to first pass the Lower Rising and then after another 70 metres the Main Flood Rising is seen on the right, with a dry stream bed continuing up the cwm. The Courthouse Main Flood Rising is located on the south side of the cwm from where the water emerges and flows for about 4 metres before it joins to the main stream bed. The water emerges from a one metre wide fissure that is only a few centimetres tall. The passage is open for at least two metres but too small to enter without excavation.

The spring comes gushing from the darkness of a small hollow in the steep limestone rockface below Canisland wood. A magical spot!
