Do you know the location of any wishing wells in London?

Thanks! That looks like a useful list, although how many of those wells are still functional, I have yet to check, and I guess newer ones won't be mentioned.

It seems most of them are inaccessible or dried up - Caesar's well is apparently a pit full of black gunk now.

I found one or two traditional wishing well looking things - but I clicked away from one of them and now I can't find it again (I think I might have scrolled far out of London and not noticed).
This is on the site too http://www.megalithic.co.uk/asb_mapsquare.php?op=noredir

And there is info about some of the ancient sites on that.

Aha! It seems the nearest really obvious wishing well is in Reigate - about £8 on the train if you go from London Bridge or Victoria - http://www.megalithic.co.uk/article.php?sid=10559

Shame that most of them are inaccessible or dried up. Black gunk sounds scary!

Reigate might be an idea though.. thanks for the suggestion. Or I suppose there are always pubs called the "Wishing Well" if I get desperate. :)

this is unrelated, but I read it today, so I guess that means something.

Today meaning yesterday. Yes. I am in your yesterday.

oops I got so existential and roundearthed that I forgot the link

Ah yes, I saw another of those when I was up north the other week!

there is one in the garden here i think. maybe you can ring up and ask. my grandma and grandad used to be part time stewards and show people around the house.

I wished for a Well- er :)
