21/76 The Lady's Well
Well or water tank, cross and statue. Tank possibly Roman,reconstructed 1788,
statue possibly C15 but placed here 1788, cross late C19.
Roman water tank c. 15 x 10 yards given new low edging walls in 1788 at which
time a statue to represent St. Paulinus was brought from Alnwick Castle and
placed in centre of tank.
In late C19 the statue was moved to the south end of the tank and replaced by a
Celtic-style wheel-head cross.
Reputed, on doubtful grounds, to be the scene of mass conversions by Paulinus
on Easter Day A.D. 627 but considered more likely to have been a preaching
station of St. Ninian.
