ST9570 : Derry Hill Well

near to Derry Hill, Wiltshire, Great Britain

Derry Hill Well
Derry Hill Well
A Victorian Well which was restored in 2002. It is situated very near the junctions of the A4 and A342.
A rhyme is etched into the lintel of the wells roof:
Here quench your thirst and make in me
An emblem of true charity,
Who why my Bounty bestow,
Am neither heard nor seen to flow.
Repaid by fresh supplies from Heaven,
For every cup of water give.
