Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


Well enclosed by a stone building. The circular stone built well has a diameter of 1.3m. It is housed within a small stone built building 1.7m square and 1.4m high. Inside are the springer for a shelf which would have spanned the well and would have been used to store butter. The nearby placenames of Holiwell, Holiwell Wood and Holywell Bottom indicate it may have been of some significance. Scheduled.
