Description

The well takes the form of a rectangular, sunken tank with paving beside it and walling around; a projecting middle level on the long sides may have been seating. There is an outflow from the NW corner, via which the water joins the stream a short distance away.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval water supplies and holy wells. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
