|The Vesica Pool in the Chalice Well gardens|
|Stunning winter colour|
Then we came to the well with it's stunning cover. A very tame robin preened itself on a tree behind us looking adorable and distracting us from the water. The wrought iron Vesica Picsis is just gorgeous though. And the wood behind has a stunning colour in the January light.
|The Well Head|
To collect our water we walked on down to the Lion's Head. We drank the water, it had a strong, but not unpleasant, mineral taste and, of course, a strong iron taste to it. We took a bottle of the water home (Chalice Well sells bottles for you to fill) although I haven't yet decided how to use it.
|The shock of bathing in healing waters in january|
On our way back out to the Vesica Pool we found the healing pool and never being one to say no to getting wet I decided to walk in. In January. It wasn't unpleasantly cold actually. I bathed my feet in the water, which felt lovely. We walked to the Vesica pool, looked round the shop and I said a quick thanks before heading back out to the car.
