Crowder's Well
   Stow speaks of it as a Pool by St. Giles' Churchyard, in his time mostly stopped up, but the spring preserved and arched over with stone (S. 16) with stairs to go down to it on the bank of the Town Ditch, near to St. Giles' Church (303 and 432). He does not use the name Crowder's Well. But Maitland says the well which supplied the Pool was called Crowder's Well, and adjoined St. Giles' Churchyard on the north-west side (I. 83).
   Harrison describes it as being in Well Street (p. 469), which street was formerly called Crowder's Well Alley (O. and M. 1677), and it seems to have been near the Vicarage House shown on the east side of Well Street in O.S. 1875.
   In Rocque's map, 1746, it is described as at the northern end of Crowder's Well Alley, but the exact site is not indicated in the map.
