6/68 St. Anthony's Well


Well or spring, probably late C18: squared, coursed stone with
irregular coping. Spring and bathing pool in line. Spring rises
in square well, sheltered in square-headed recess in wall about lm
high in bank. Water runs in pipe to bathing pool, sunk into
ground: pool about 3.5 x 2.5m in plan, reported 1.5m deep. A
flight of steps between retaining walls leads down in centre of
long side to bottom. Outlet at high level by a stone trough, set
off centre, across top of wall about 1.4m thick. Water runs
thence down bank to stream, on centre-line of pool. Probably
largest and most picturesque holy well in Gloucestershire.
(Committee for Rescue Archaeology: Avon, Gloucestershire and
Somerset, 1977 report)
