Hilda's Well

Sacred Well


Saint Hildas well is situated in the church yard of Saint Hilda in the village of Hinderwell which is said to be a corruption of Hilda's Well.
The village was recorded in the Domesday book as Hindrevvelle.
The well is supposedly where Hilda stopped to chill a while whilst travelling to become Abbess of Whitby.
It's a pretty well and was restored in 1912. The water looks very clear.
It is "dressed" by the local children once a year.
