Wow St Peters Well. New one on me. Reminds me a bid of Alderley Edge. How deep is the brick chamber? that might be a clue, although it does not look very old.

I'd say 3 to 4 feet, Rik

Am in touch with someone else on the matter, who replies:

I am not sure that what you discovered at Worfield is the correct well, as I understood it was to the west of the church not the north-east. Also it was
either in the churchyard or in a garden adjoining. I think this one needs a
bit more research. But clearly it is not a well-known feature of the place,
or else your informant would surely have known about it. The other info I
read was that it has gone, and I suspect that may be the truth.


Pastscape lists two contradicting uncertain reports,

cheers

Tim

Yeah pastscape is a very good resource. It is driven directly by NMR's and SMR's and these are usually a concensous of various historical and archaeological reports. It may well be that two wells did exist at the site, a secular and 'Holy' Well for example. Might be worth chasing up SMR's for the church area just to check no info has escaped pastscape.

Leper Well now on YouTube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVE7U2AXO5Q

For some reason, the films taken on my main camera (Coolpix 8800) nearly always fail to get processed on YouTube. On my old camera (Coolpix 5200) they're fine, so I am using that for films, and my main camera for photos.

I'll start posting things to the NWI once the book is out of the way - and by that time, there'll be a good core of films to get it rolling. I am also endeavouring to keep them to 60 seconds or so now, as recommended.

Cheers

Tim
