I'm not sure I believe either of these stories, but it does seem to have magic qualities. Note that although the water is high around it, the level in the bath itself is quite low. So, if you want to visit Wamphray's mysterious bath, just stop at the Jocksthorn Bridge. There's no charge!
In my pre-blogging days in 2005, this bridge got jammed up with debris brought down by the river. The resulting build up of water in a particularly wet spell eventually found an outlet, and flooded many of the houses in the village, and the village hall, with hardly any warning. Bad memories for many.
Cloudporn group, I wonder?
