Photo: Holy Well

The weeping cross and I went to have a look at a holy well on tuesday. It lies near the river wey in the grounds of Oxenford, and marks the bonville spring. The Well is covered by a gothic arch designed in the 1840s by Pugin who designed other outbuildings around Oxenford as well as the house of commons. Inside the arch is a bench, and another hollowing out to the left takes you through to the water itself. The water passes under ground and comes into the open via a lions mouth.

Having taken in the beuatiful gothic architecture we went off to the outskirts of Guildford to sit by the river near St Catherines Chapel There is another holy well near here too.

I spotted this on the side of a door way up the hill from the well.
