    Looks like the temp sensor housing may be leaking. I believe it's pretty common for it to leak from there.

    Spartan, do you know which pipe I need to replace or what pipe it is? Unsure where I would buy a replacement from, also do you know if it's an easy fix? In an awkward spot. Thanks for your help though!

    The housing generally comes as one piece. I got mine from eBay but I'm sure most parts places will do them. What engine/car/year is it? It's a fiddly job but nothing to major.

    If you look at the left side of the engine just in front of the cambelt cover the engine code will be etched on the head

    Looks like the coolant flange as said above, but make sure to get the 'O' ring aswell as they dry out and leak. Its straight forward enough to change but Its a bit of a PITA getting all the hoses disconnected but the part itself is fitted with two 10mm nuts.
    Here's a pic of where to find your engine code (3 letters) then use the info in the stickies to find the part number
