Michael's Well - Well
St Michael's Well is located by the side
of a narrow lane on the west side of the village of Well (aptly named).
The OS map places the well on the north side of the lane, but this is
only the outflow from a pipe that carries the water under the road, The
spring actually rises at the foot of a small rock outcrop, on the
opposite side of the road, (under the tree in the centre of the pic)
but the pipework has been extended right up to the springhead and so the
water is not visible as it flows from its source.
|Access - the well is located by the road side.
Condition - an excellent site if the springhead could be restored to its natural setting.
