St Peters Pool Bourne

By GordonLack
St Peters Pool Bourne

The pool is possibly one of the most ancient sites of artesian water supply in the country and has figured prominently in the development of the town. It forms part of the memorial gardens and it is this spring, or the stream that flows from it, that gives Bourne its name from the Old English word burna which was common in the early Anglo-Saxon period and is found in its modern form, particularly in Scotland, as burn meaning stream or spring. Many other English place names have a similar derivation with burn, borne or bourne as an ending to denote a river or stream in the vicinity. ( Text by Rex Needle, from A Portrait of Bourne)
