Wenlock Edge

The holy wells and sacred springs, the ponds and pools and boggy flushes, the streams and brooks which stitch the land to rivers - all these have meaning, a poetry of forgotten names and an ecological significance which is sometimes greater than our own. They are also more than a metaphor for the flow of life and a passing through this world that we all must make. We may have lost our respect for the wild waters, but that may be about to change.
-- from County Diary by Paul Evans
