Notes

In NMRS records, Bailey 1907 records it below the church, adding that 'it is now dry except in exceptional rain due to the draining of the field. It was a holy well and the water was in use for healing until recent times. Offerings of pins were left in a twin-holed stone beside it.' In 1967 OS surveyors (NMRS) could not locate it. They identified a stone-lined well at known locally as Priest's Well, but this may not be the same well as St Walloch's.
