St. Aldhelm's well

Well head. C18. Dressed stone. Water issues from a low opening in a stone wall set into a bank and flows through a
shallow channel with dressed stone sides; flanking rubble walls extend to each side enclosing the spring area. Further
section of walling on roadside extending approximately SW to each side of the well. A medieval site, but most of what
