St Bertram's Well is very pretty. The dry stone wall enclosure is the spitting image of many Derbyshire Wells I have seen where this is often done. One Well in particular whose name I cannot recall at the moment, high something, has a very similar walled enclosure, the water supply actually running for a number of metres back from the wall in a long chamber, and the Well 'proper' comprising a tiny pipe sticking through the dry stone walling at the chambers end. Not a pipe well though i hasten to add.
