We have passed by the sign for the well many times and one day decided to visit. There was plenty of information at the well which made interesting viewing. Worth a visit if you are passing.

Not easy to find but worth a short, 20 minute, visit if you are close by. Well written board explaining the building and origins of the well.

This is a well cared-for and unexpected feature hidden in a remote Chiltern Village. A perfectly Indian well-head in a quintessentially English village. The charming story of how it got to be there is explained on-site.
