In August 2012 an event occurred that was to change the perception of Malvern's springs and wells for ever. Dr. Bruce Osborne and Cora Weaver launched their new book detailing 130 sites of interest around the Malvern Hills. Previous publications by these authors such as Aquae Malvernensis (1994) and Springs, Spouts, Fountains and Holy Wells of the Malvern Hills (1992) (1997) (2001) had progressively detailed up to 88 sites as research and discovery of Malvern's historic waters progressed.
 
This latest book is the culmination of 20 years researching the springs and wells of the Malvern Hills by the authors. As such it is the most comprehensive guide to the famous water sources and an important aid to visitors wishing to discover and explore the heritage of the Malvern Hills. The astounding and often long forgotten history of 130 springs, spouts, fountains and wells sites is detailed, together with information on what can be seen today. Many sources were utilised for the Victorian water cure adding to Malvern's fame as an historic spa town. For centuries Malvern waters have also been bottled as well as drunk directly from the springs. The history of bottling and the famous brands involved is given in recognition of the contribution this industry has made to local communities and their springs and wells over the years. Situated in "middle England", the Malvern "mountains" are a locality that lovers of the outdoors and countryside will wish to explore further after reading
