So I am still looking for St johns Well in Berkhamsted. The Well has a long history being spoken against in the medieval period for the number of heathen rites that were being conducted at the site, and in later history becoming incorporated in a hospital of the same name. The site is now lost. Below is the valley base where the water from the Well probably out flowed. the modern St Johns Well court is to the left of the image.

So moving onto St Johns Well Lane [St Johns Well Court being to the lanes right], at 90 degrees from the left of the above picture. If we look to the top of the lane we can see a small white shop, now empty, that is beleived according to some sources to the extant remains of St Johns Well. the associated hospital is now under the Royal Mail complex to the left of this lane, and this is another contender for the site of the Well.
