Listing Text


849-1/7/144 (East side)
10/05/73 St Gudula's Well, including steps
and retaining wall
(Formerly Listed as:
St Gudula's Well and retaining wall)


Holy well, fed by a spring that has now almost dried up.
Probably medieval. Consists of a small pool of water fed by a
narrow channel to SE, both pool and channel enclosed by low
stone rubble retaining walls. On W side is a taller stone
rubble wall along the road frontage. Attached to this wall is
a worn oval cement plaque recording its restoration in the
?1930s; the waters of the well 'are said to be good for weak
eyes'. The well is approached from SW by a shallow flight of
stone steps. The surroundings of the well and the adjacent St
Gudula's Cross (qv) have been improved in late C20 with a
surface of stone chippings, public seat and ornamental tree.
