St. Michael's Church, Well
St Michael's Church, Well, is on the northern side of Church Street, at the eastern edge of the village of Well, near Bedale. The village is said to derive its name from a famous well dedicated to St Michael. A church stood here in 1086, possibly a converted Roman building, but the present church was built by Sir Ralph Neville in 1320-1350 as a memorial to one of the great feudal families of northern England. Its original dedication appears to have been to St James. [ The History Files ]
