The Hinderwell Well

This John Thomas Ross of Whitby postcard image is entitled “The Old Pump Well” although often called “St Hilda’s Well” where traditionally whilst St Hilda was travelling to Whitby stopped for a water and having prayed for water, a spring appeared. The well today is more of a monument presentation, no lever pump to possibly be prevent vandalism!
