AllenHill Spaw - Matlock

Just off the A6 Bakewell road at Matlock is a small stone surround to the outlet of a disused mineral spring dating to 1893.

The inscription reads 1821, Allenhill Spa Restored. The water comes from the Chalybeate spring which is rich in iron, hence the orange-brown colour. SK296604
