The Abbots Well

The actual Abbotʼs Well is round the corner and down the hill from the car park opposite Well House. It is easily missed. On first sight it looks like nothing more than a badly maintained surface water drain and a manhole cover.

In fact both items are wooden, and the cover lifts to reveal a small pool of clear water.

The car park itself has stunning views and a pond, and plenty of good open ground for walking, leading down to Ogdens and its various fords.

Itʼs busier and not as pretty as nearby Gorley Common.
