Kilburn Wells

Place  From 1714  To 1863

Categories: Architecture, Food & Drink

In 1714, a well of 'chalybeate waters' (water impregnated with iron) was discovered near the Bell Inn, Kilburn. Gardens and a 'great room' were opened in an attempt to compete with the nearby Hampstead Well. They remained popular into the nineteenth century. The Bell Inn was demolished and rebuilt in 1863.
