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]|
