Shepherd's Well

Categories: Food & Drink

One of the two sources of the Tyburn river, the other being in the grounds of Belsize Manor (now the area called Belsize Park).  The picture shows the well in 1820.  In 1878 Edward Walford wrote " There used to be an arch over the conduit, and rails stood round it; but since Hampstead has been supplied by the New River Company the conduit has become neglected, and the spring is now only a small and dirty swamp."
