St Mary's Well





















A well that served the Saxons

Now lovingly restored

Water drawn from hidden depths

And then from ewers poured

Up folk came from Ladye Bay

By faith to Walton drawn

Consecrating hallowed ground

And there a new church born

A tower raised, a parish named

But doomed to disappear

Until its resurrection

By those who hold God dear

St Mary's Well continues

With spring so crystal pure

To prove in ever-changing times

Sweet Nature's gifts endure.
