Well house at
17/11/66 Willoughbridge Wells
(formerly listed as
Well House at
Willowbridge)

II

Well house. Probably mid-C17 with considerable later modifications, the
dates 1690, 1701 and 1864 probably referring to repairs or re-buildings.
Sandstone ashlar with lead flashing to the cornice. Square in plan with
2 openings on each side, all with moulded surrounds; moulded cornice
and on the east side 2 male heads (C18?). Now roofless, but probably
not originally. Warm springs were discovered here in the 1620's and
it is probable that the well house was built by Lord Gerard of
Gerards Bromley Hall. B.O.E., p.207.
