More photos of St Mary’s Well at Jesmond, Newcastle Upon Tyne…

 

The dimensions and shape of the site make it difficult to get a decent photograph of…but we try.

St. Mary’s Well, Jesmond, Newcastle Upon Tyne

 

A quick visit to St Mary’s Well in Jesmond, Newcastle Upon Tyne, a couple of days ago saw an interesting development – remains of candles at the well, what was possibly an incense burner and a ribbon tied to an overhanging branch.

The nearby ruins of St Mary’s Chapel are always decorated with candles, fresh flowers, Roman Catholic iconography, etc, but this is the first time I’ve noted evidence of worship at the well.

More photos, the story of this well, etc can be found at the Holy Wells & Water Lore forum –
