Thanks for your interest.
MPP does not indicate the exact location of the spring, only that it rose on
Larkhill and flowed past the eastern end of the Cursus which puts it above
112m elevation with the potential surface of the water table higher than
112m (not sure by how much).
OS map Pathfinder 1221 shows the 100m contour (down slope from Larkhill and
Stonehenge) runs north of the Cursus and south of Larkhill and Stonehenge,
putting both locations on the same slope from the north.
Sorry if my description is not real clear, but there is no need for water to
flow uphill. The point is that the water table is high enough to have fed
water to Stonehenge.
