As I remember it the spring was on your left as you came down the hill towards Sugar Well Mount, around the entrance to the field just before the Mount. I have marked it on the attached aerial shot. I think the farm is owned by the same family that had it when I was a child, so they should be able to tell you where the spring is now.

I used to play there regularly in the early-mid 60's as we often used to go that way to visit relatives. I can also remember seeing rags tied to the trees around there and my mam telling me it was a Holy Well. Oddly to my young mind, when we went to my relatives in Ireland there was a similar Holy Well near there also and that used to have rags tied to the surrounding trees as well.

go through the process till you get the error code.
then top left hit blue <- arrow
then active threads
and you've posted.

so when you get the error message you've done it correctly and go back.

if you try again you get double posts

Great site thoughRegular Smiley and thanks, I'll have a look for Sugar Well.

Has anyone any idea why the Revolution Well was so named? Was it anything to do with the Civil War perhaps?

It commemorates the 100 year anniversary of William of Orange coming to these shores - The Glorious Revolution as it was.
