Located beside the highway near Lawn Hill (about half way between Skidegate and Tlell). A carved wooden Madonna stands beside the Spring. The Spring was named by Mrs. Annie Richardson of Tlell after a similar one she had known in England. The local residents say if you drink the pure water you will return to the islands again. Across the road, on the beach, are unusual geological forms: black basalt of old lava flows and some columnar basalt columns The hard basalt weathers slower than the softer rocks nearby and forms walls and projections on the beach.
