The Lady Well, Ladywell Street, Glasgow, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on one of the few remaining tangible links with the medieval period in Glasgow, Scotland.

Just to the east of Glasgow’s 13th century Cathedral can be found the Lady Well which is situated in (the very quiet) Ladywell Street which in turn is off John Knox Street.

Like the nearby Cathedral, the Lady Well is said to date from the 13th century and would have been located close to the heart of the medieval city.

The Lady Well was restored in 1836 and then rebuilt in 1874 by the Merchants House of Glasgow. A further restoration was undertaken in 1983 by Tennant Caledonian Brewery Limited.

Despite the Well’s isolated location, the visible monetary offerings suggest the site benefits from a form of reverence today.
