(NT 6237 7441) Rood Well (NR)

OS 6" map (1957)

The Well of the Holy Rood, which has long been filled up, is enclosed by a small circular building, 3ft 10 ins internal diameter, with a doorway, and a conical stone roof, topped by a probably 14th c. flowered finial which is said to have come from the church (NT67SW 8), to which a paved path leads from the well.

J R Walker 1883

The well is generally as discribed by Walker: although partially filled-in, water can still be seen. The path to the church no longer exists.

Visited by OS (RD) 6 April 1966
