The Chapel Well, formerly known as "Christ's Well" (W Drysdale 1904) cannot now be seen as it has lately been covered up with soil and debris. Its position is pointed out just E of the bottom of a flight of steps descending to a small burn. There is a tradition in the village that its water was used medicinally.
