Roman well
Dug by the Roman garrison of Lindum Colonia, and used as a source of water for some 1600 years before being abandoned in the 17th century. It may also have served as a baptistery for the adjacent church of St Paul in the Bail, the oldest church in Lincolnshire and a site of continuous Christian worship from the Roman occupation until 1971, when the diocese decided to demolish it.
