DescriptionKerrys Spout is a cold water spring located along the east shoreline beyond the Back of the Beach. Oral tradition has it that a British man named Kingspear moved to Branch at the same time as Thomas Nash and settled in the Easter Cove. Little is known about Kingspear except that he converted to Catholicism and changed his name to Kerry. Kerrys Dock was located close to this spout which is still used as a source of drinking water.
