Full Description

SK 1492 7611: TIDESWELL, WEEDING/WEDDING WELL Weeding well, Wytynewelle etc. 'Spring by which withies grow'. It is one of Cotton's wonders of the Peak and is called Weeding-Wall or Tydes-Well (1681). The traditional explanation of Tideswell as the 'tidal well' is no doubt much earlier than Cotton, but Tideswell is "Tidi's stream". (1). The well, consisting of a square opening formed of brick, sunk several feet below the ground level, is in a private garden attached to 'Craven House' on the right-hand side of the Manchester road. (2) [SK 1492 7611] Ebbing & Flowing Well. (3). See G.P. AO/66/10/4. (4)
