Came across this in a roundabout way...

First a news report of a Russian Orthodox Church in Oxford - St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, great name - with a brief mention that it was utilizing the waters of a "holy well nearby" -

Wondering about the holy well , I found the church's own website... on one of the photo pages I found these -

Seems to be the well mentioned in the report.

And then I found this -

Russian Orthodoxy and Alice In Wonderland...

I have heard of this well for some reason before. However, I am currently many thousands of miles away from my books, so will have to check another time. I would though say interesting assoc of St Margaret with Fride, as often occurs for some reason at wells.
