St. Winifred's Well . Thanks to fascinating links with a seventh-century saint, miracles, novels and holy water, Woolston's famous St Winifred's Well still draws visitors as it did centuries ago. The story goes that the water first sprang from the earth in exactly the spot where the remains of St Winifred's body was placed by monks resting on their journey from Holywell to Shrewsbury Abbey, where the saint's relics were being taken in 1138 to form a shrine. Reference to this resting place appears on numerous occasions in Ellis Peters' Brother Cadfael books. Dating to the late fifteenth century, the timber-framed well house is believed to have been created by the wife of Henry VII, Margaret, Countess of Beaufort, who was responsible for the site at Holywell too. The water is said to heal bruises, sore eyes and broken bones. Again, sorry for lack of pictures at the moment, I will post them when I have time at the weekend. .
