OS 6" map (1957).

See also NX87NE 5.

A well, now closed up, called Angel Well, stood near the chapel (NX87NE 5 q.v.) with which it evidently had some connection.

Name Book 1850

A little below NX87NE 5 is a circle of rounded stones - the basin of a spring. This was the Angel Well whose waters have been diverted for drainage purposes and now have an outlet in an adjoining burn.
