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 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
(Little B: Cheltenham: London: 1952-: 34).
