Willow water
The English Lake District is blessed with some of the highest levels of rainfall in the UK. WILLOW water’s mineral content was a unique blueprint that reflected the geology of the Cartmel area. Just below the surface on Cartmel Fell lies a deep layer of peat formed from the remains of a prehistoric forest of white willow trees. This ancient woodland once covered the southern Lake District in a dense canopy. As rain fell on Cartmel Fell the rainwater traveled through this layer picking up valuable minerals on its journey. A substantial layer of limestone provided a natural filter and also endows Willow Water with its significant calcium content. The water traveled down away from the fells peaks, picking up the remaining minerals which made up its unique composition, and formed the aquifer in the sand and gravel beds that exists below the Cartmel area. Willow Water could trace its roots back to the 12th century when it was discovered by Augustinian Monks. This underground body of water was the source of the famous Holy Well of Cartmel, which had been renowned in the North West of England for its restorative qualities from the 1700s.
