    Spring Cellar~ Spring water would flow through a trench usually created around the perimeter of a stone or brick floor. This water, would keep anything in the trough cold. The most common food product would be raw milk, stored in pottery crocks, set in the cold water. There are often stones protruding from the walls to support shelves. The flowing cold water would also chill the air that would extend the useful life of the most perishable food items kept dry but cool on these shelves.

    And my dreamscape will be complete with a lovely little spring house sitting beside my little stream. Ahhh...Someday....
