Listing Text


15/12 St Helen's Well, to
6.2.68 south of St Helen's


Spring in low rectangular enclosure of uncertain date, but probably altered in
late C19 (early C19 accounts mention stone benches lining the walls, now no
longer there). From roadway, steps lead down to wrought-iron gate in centre of
north wall; wall continues on east and west sides. Slobbered rubble with
sandstone coping topped by weathered limestone flags. Narrow path runs round
internally next to wall. Water rises from large rectangular opening to flow
into beck over steps at front; small secondary outflow under east wall.
