HISTORICAL NOTE: Well Walk (or Old Well Walk as it was known
in the C19) was laid out by Andrews (the town surveyor) in
1743 to designs supplied by Norborne Berkeley as a long avenue
of elms extending for over 900 yards past Henry Skillicorne's
original Pump Room and Well to the lower part of what is now
Bayshill Road. As such, this Walk with its C18 houses, is an
important survival of the C18 spa town development and frames
one of the entrance ways to the Parish Church of St Mary,
Church Street (qv).
