The Clerk's Well



The Clerk's Well

The well that gave Clerkenwell it's name can be seen here.

Location: Well Court, Clerkenwell, London

Description: The Clerks Well you can see in the basement of Well Court, can be seen from Street level in Farringdon Lane - peers through the windows.

It was this well that gives its name to the area now known as Clerkenwell and near here was the scene of medieval miracle plays that was performed by the local Parish Clerks of London.

The well was located in the boundary wall of St Mary's Nunnery, and after the dissolution of the nunnery and the boundary wall was destroyed the well was lost. This ancient water hole was only rediscovered during rebuilding in Farringdon Lane in 1924.
