Waggoners Wells

Local beauty spot with lovely walks around ponds, streams and waterfalls

Waggoners Wells is a series of large ponds linked by streams and waterfalls originally created in the 17th Century and it is believed they were originally intended as hammer ponds to serve the local iron industry.

Waggoners Wells was acquired by the National Trust in 1919 and dedicated to the memory of Sir Robert Hunter (1844-1913) the founder of The National Trust in 1895 .

Nearby is a wishing well, mentioned by Flora Thompson in her writings of the locality.

Access to Waggoners Wells by car is via Waggoners Wells Road which turns off Headley Road west of the village.

There is a large car park with free parking but please do not leave any valuables in your car.
