TF1793 : Lud's Well

taken 9 years ago, near to Stainton le Vale, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

Lud's Well
Lud's Well
Not easy to make out, but the darker vegetation of the ferns left of centre mark 'Lud's Well' which is quite a spectacular spring for these parts, forming a mini waterfall. Lud is said refer to 'Hlud' meaning fast-flowing river, however there are also those who speculate that it was a ritual site with connections to Lud the Celtic deity, or even the mythical King Lud. There is a well trodden path to the site through the trees but no right of way.
