Place To 1855
The name was first recorded in the 15th century, and maps of this period show it was located in front of the area now occupied by Ladywell railway station. It was probably a holy well dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It was eventually covered over as part of the construction of sewer works. its coping stones were later uncovered during work to underpin the railway bridge, and in 1896 these were incorporated as part of the fountain that stood in the grounds of the Ladywell public baths.
