Garrowpipe Spring

Walked up through Harptree Combe to take a look at Garrowpipe Spring on a pleasant Sunday morning – dry, bit of a breeze and good visibility. There was a good flow of water in the previously noted collapse. The more I look at this site, the more I think “what an interesting little digging project this would be”. The site has been dug in the past by the Bristol Exploration Club in 1972. Barrington and Stanton (1977) record a mean daily flow of 40 000 gallons with no proved feeders.
