SJ 73 NW LOGGERHEADS C.P Ashley

8/1 Well house at 17/11/66 Willoughbridge Wells (formerly listed as Well House at Willowbridge)

II

Well house. Probably mid-C17 with considerable later modifications, the dates 1690, 1701 and 1864 probably referring to repairs or re-buildings. Sandstone ashlar with lead flashing to the cornice. Square in plan with 2 openings on each side, all with moulded surrounds; moulded cornice and on the east side 2 male heads (C18?). Now roofless, but probably not originally. Warm springs were discovered here in the 1620's and it is probable that the well house was built by Lord Gerard of Gerards Bromley Hall. B.O.E., p.207.
