Monument to Myddelton, Great Amwell, Hertfordshire. The inscription reads: AMWELL Perpetual be thy Stream Nor e'er thy Spring be less Which thousands drink who never dream whence flows the boon they bless. To often thus ungrateful man Blind and unconscious lives Enjoys kind Heavn's indulgent plan, Nor thinks of Him who gives. NARES 1818. The memorial is to Sir Hugh Myddelton, who constructed the New River in 1609 to bring water to London.
