We were honoured to be part of St. Edith's Well restoration, Bristol's oldest source of drinking water Though the water is not drinkable by our standards, we extracted some for Bishop Vivienne Faull to bless the well, remembering how lucky we are to have this precious resource https://t.co/R7bZmU3jyb
