St. Eustace's Well

A well at Withersden, Kent, that took its name from a certain Eustachius, abbot of Flai (c. 1200). He was said to have been a monk of great learning and sanctity, and to have come and preached at Wye, and to have blessed a fountain there, so that afterwards its waters were endowed by such miraculous power, that by it all diseases were cured.
