Documentary Evidence


The well is known from a medieval document containing the following information: "In 1256 Geoffrey of Weetslade came to an agreement with Roger Bertram, a minor, and Agnes his mother, concerning their rights of common in Weetslade and Mason (Merdesfen) respectively. The Bertrams remitted to Geoffrey their right of common in Weetslade, saving right of access to the well at Thurspottes".
