Wall Hills (Thornbury)



"The Lady Well

This well has now been tanked and there is a small reservoir. It is beside an old stretch of track on the footpath leading east from St Anna's church.

The well is said to have been the source of water for Wall Hills hill fort. There was supposedly a secret tunnel from a pair of yew trees formerly on the edge of the camp all the way to the yew that still overshadows the well."

From "The Healing Wells of Herefordshire" - Jonathan Sant (1994 Moondial).

The well is not marked on the OS 1:25000, but the work above gives the NGR as SO6262 5962.
