There is always a spring in this road in autumn, winter and spring. It is not there in summer, in dry weather. But just now I also saw a new spring by the road in Bolingey Wood. I have never noticed it before. If there is a spring in the road, the stream is deep. If the water in the stream is low there is no spring in the road – the way is dry. Do the marks signify the stream depth? Mark five for five feet perhaps? I don’t know.
