Visited here on Saturday... could be in danger of being forgotten and lost in the long run

From Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nun's_Well

Local legend has it that hundreds of years ago, an unfortunate nun was once pushed down this well, with the well promptly being covered up.

Supposedly, years later, farm labourers uncovered the well and her phantom appeared before them.


Incidentally, couldn't help noticing numerous "orbs" on your photos. I'd personally put it down to the rain... but there are many who'd interpret them as manifestations of the ghostly nun !
