The Water Mill

"Holland-in-England" 1906

The Water Mill

The water drunk on the Island is mostly rain water stored in cisterns which is pure and free from lime, but the tanks must be kept perfectly clean, and the water boiled before drinking it. The Leigh Beck Farm Well, after a careful analysis a year ago, showed the water to contain :—

Grains per gallon
Mineral Matter69.50
Chlorine22.50
Lime02.10
Sulphuric acid03.90
Oxygen absorbed in three hours00.942

If this water is preferred to rain water, it can be obtained by all living at Leigh Beck upon paying the trifling rate of 2s 6d. a quarter.
