CRIPTON WELL at ASHOVER

The CRIPTON WELL on Cripton Lane is said to never run dry. It is now overgrown and difficult to find - just listen for running water. It is said that at one time more water was drawn and drunk from this well than from anywhere else in Ashover. It was so popular and with supposed health-giving powers the residents from Ashover's two hydropathic establishments trekked up to the well to take the waters.
