Notes: The Conduit Springs are regarded historically as one of the best spring water sources in Wiltshire. A Grade 1 Listed building, from the fourteenth/fifteenth century, against the small cliff, access the main spring, which rises at the base of the cliff. In the past, water was carried by a conduit to the Edington Priory by a licence granted in 1362. These springs are never known to have failed.
