Early 19th century. Well comprising random rubble, square-plan wellhead in semi-ruinous condition. Flat-arched opening to E.
Amisfield Park originally centred on Amisfield House, which was demolished in 1928. The house was designed by Isaac Ware for Colonel Francis Charteris, circa 1755 and took its name from the Charteris family seat near Dumfries (see separate listings for various structures in Amisfield Park). Corby Well lies to the NE of Amisfield Park, just inside the E boundary wall (see separate listing). On the 1st Edition OS map a footpath is shown leading to the well from what is now the A1. Random pieces of deep red sandstone, such as that on the SE corner of the well, can be found forming part of various buildings nearby, and are thought to have come from the old St Mary's Convent which lay to the E of Amisfield.
