Description

The Health Spring is located on the slope of the left bank of the Karogupīte River flowing through the marshy valley, about 100 m NE of the uninhabited Dzelzāmuri homestead. The slope of the Karogupīte River is overgrown with mixed forest, which was cleaned up right at the Spring surroundings last winter. At the slope, the Spring is indicated by a 10-15 m large damp area overgrown with distinct grass. Nearby, there are some more smaller Spring places overgrown with grass. At the slope of the bank, there are several notches; nearby, there is an iron hammer place, and it is possible that there at the slope of the Karogupīte River or downwards in the marsh used to be an iron ore mining place.

Narrative

At the Dzelzāmurs, there used to be an iron spring. Jānis Megris remarks that they used to call the Spring in various names just like a beloved child: the Health Spring, the Life Spring, the Spring, the Holy Spring. They say the richest master of Staicele was the Rēciemi homestead's master. He used to send his maid to the Health Spring for water each morning. (G. Eniņš. Unknown Hillfort, Skulls in Cave Labyrinths. „Rīgas Balss” January 26, 1994)

simple. If you go along the river bank from the bridge's side, then it is more difficult.
Infrastructure, management, facilities
None, but it is possible to facilitate a path from the bridge along the river bank and the Spring place itself, which at present is even hard to be identify.
