Although the plaque on St. Peter’s Well states 1840, the well dates to much earlier than this. The holy well served an important spiritual and social function, a tradition aligned as much if not more with earlier pagan beliefs as with contemporary religious practices. 

As such it was a focus point for the area, and its location in the centre of Peterswell village, to which it has given its name, is significant.
