Address: Main Street, Stoke Row, RG9 5QJ

Your Visit

Take a look around the ornate structure which has been beautifully restored with original colour paint and gold leaf to discover the fascinating story of the Well via the newly installed notice boards.

Next door to the Well you will find the unique hexagonal shaped Well Cottage. Once home to the Well Warden it is now a privately rented home generating income for the upkeep of the Well and grounds.


Adjacent to Well Cottage enter a kissing gate to Ishree Bagh, the Cherry Orchard where cherry trees once provided an essential source of income to maintain the Well. Some original cherry trees remain but the orchard now provides an open space for all to enjoy. Follow the paths to discover all the noticeboards to gain a real insight to how the orchard once looked. See if you can find the elephant sculpture commissioned to mark the 150th anniversary of the Well.

Also located in the orchard you will find a wonderful play area provided by Stoke Row Parish Council which has beautiful wooden play equipment and swings for children to explore.

Whilst you are visiting the Well do pop into the local village store for a coffee or have a drink in one of the local pubs.
