Running streams numerous; springs excellent. In places, however, where the clay forms the top-soil, the water runs off, and unless you bore through the clay the water must be looked for at some little distance, where the clay is overlaid by a porous material. Many springs resemble the Bath waters, but are not unpleasant to the taste. In one place there are "brine" springs.
