Tyneham Village
Water tap dated 1853 - the main source of water for all the homes in the village except Laundry Cottages. The legend reads: Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall giv him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlating life. John 4th 13&14
