Description

A dual pipe spring well known to the locals. It sits in front of the former Jones Bottling Company. I was told it’s unused run-off from the bottling company, provided by the generous owner. The water is cold, crystal clear, and refreshing.

    This is NOT unused run-off from the bottling plant. Originally this Spring emerged from the ground on New Road, diagonally across from the old Wishing Well Bottling Plant. The Jones Bottling Company was permitted to cap this Spring on condition that access to the spring water was always available, at no cost, to the residents of the area. To satisfy this, the outlet shown was erected sometime between 1947 and 1969 although I believe it was first a single outlet.

    To clarify my last comment: The Jones Bottling Company was permitted to cap the Spring at New Road and pipe the water to their plant on Highway 1 on the condition that the company provided an outlet where area residents could take the spring water at anytime and without charge.

      John Freddrick jones of Wemouth North is the man that put the pipe in in 1963 so please thank him. and he can give you the history you seek. Thank you.

    As I have drank the water from this spring personally I can vouch for it amazing qualities. I have never tasted water that didn’t have some kind of after taste but this water has none. I especially like how it’s ice cold in the summer….not so cool in the winter but hey can’t have it both ways. My only regret is that I no longer live in NS. But I would give this spring 10/10 🙂

    The outlet was tapped when the “new” Jones Bottling Plant was built, if I remember correctly. I was told that the water used by the business, and the water supplied to the public is only a small portion of what flows underground. The company won many awards for the best tasting product because of that water.

    This is great tasting water.I try to stop everytime I pass there.There are always people filling containers because thats all they ever drink.Everyone in south west Nova Scotia knows about this place.

    My neighbours in Yarmouth made regular trips to this spring for all their drinking water back when it was a long (at least 3 hours return) drive in the 50s and 60s. I believe their sons still do even though it takes only half the time now. When going by, my father would also stop here. Now that the highway by-passes it, I don’t, but I still like the water.

    Correct, locals are still using this dual sized tap at the front of the plant in Weymouth, Nova Scotia. Plant looks like it is currently being refurbished. Current owner is George J Krediet, living in Windsor Ontario. Current company owning plant is at about 3799 Tecumseh Road, Windsor Ontario. Google maps street view has the building, saw it with my own eyes.

  11. Rosanna Stoddard says:

    I take four / five gallon jugs and fill them once a month, I also fill a litter bottle for my hour drive home, I love that good ice cold water. Its worth the drive

  12. Twilah price says:

    I stopped by to fill up 3 water bottles on my way back to Halifax to catch a flight back to London Ontario. It had been years since I stopped as it was always busy at the spot. The water was so good, enjoyed it so much.

    Thank you.
