According to Ordnance Survey data this is the site of 'Pilgrim's Well'. A visit to the site in 1979 found no traces of a well but it is possible that tree planting in this area may have destroyed the well. Documentary research shows that the well was likely owned or built by someone with the Pilgrim surname, rather than having any religious connections.
