Druids Well

Hob Uid: 445558
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Chagford
Grid Ref : SX7163086200
Summary : ? Md well
More information : "Druid's Well", Middlecott. A roadside well not
built into the hedge but free standing. (Possibly the well on
OS 6" 1963 at SX 71638600). (1)

The well is at SX 71638620, and consists of a stone lined
trough about 0.4m. deep, above which is a crude structure of
untrimmed boulders with a massive capstone. It measures about
1.0m. by 1.4m. superficially and is 1.1m. high. (See ground
photographs).

It is obviously very old and the name 'Druids Well' is known
locally, though its origin is uncertain.

Surveyed at 1:2500 on M.S.D (Why the well was omitted from the
OS 25" 1959 is puzzling: the OS publised well 9m. to the
northwest is a collapsed iron post and slate structure, now
defunct and infilled). (2)
