Monument Number 41448

Hob Uid: 41448
Location :
Lancashire
Lancaster
Lancaster
Grid Ref : SD4108961591
Summary : Church Well(Prob.Md.Holy Well)(site)
More information : HOLY WELL at HEYSHAM called the CHURCH WELL. (1)

The well outside the churchyard gate at HEYSHAM had, within
living recollection, an arched head full of long slender hart's
tongued ferns, hanging down to the water, but the walling in the
bank above gave way and fell in, and the carved stones have
disappeared. (2)

The legend that the well outside the churchyard gate was a
holy well is without foundation. At present it is used as a
drain from my greenhouse.(a)

[SD 41086159] The existing well outside the churchyard gate
although disused, is modern. It is circular in shape and
constructed of stone, and is set in the wall of the rectory
garden. There are two steps leading up to it from street level.
Although no definite evidence was discovered it would appear
that this well replaced that mentioned in Auth.1-2 (3)
