Bishopwearmouth, Monk's Well
Water Supply and Drainage
Water Storage Site
About 200 yards to the north-west of the church, in a garden, there was an ancient well, formerly known by the name of the Monk's Well, which, according to tradition, belonged to the monastary. It is now built over, but remains of it apparently were traceable at a later date in the walls of a house erected on the site.
