See the Clerk's Well

Though it has not been in formal use since the middle of the 19th century, the Well which lent its name to Clerkenwell is still visible through a window on Farringdon Lane.

Open to the public by appointment six days a week, the Well disappeared for many years before being rediscovered as part of building work in 1924. It is not known exactly how old the well is, but it was featured in William Fitzstephen's description of London in 1174.
