Fable has it that two men on their way to work came across a mermaid here. She told them that there was gold in the well and that if they joined her in the water she would give them whatever they liked. One of the fellows apparently blasphemed during the encounter and this apparently gave Holy Well its name. We named the cache 'The Lost Mermaid' since, if indeed these chaps saw a mermaid there, she was surely lost. However, it has also been said that a mermaid was seen at Aqualate Mere and water from this spring enters the River Meese which empties into that mere. The full story can be read at the following URL:
The original cache contents are Log Sheets; Pencil; Pencil Sharpener and the Geocache note.Plus some small foriegn coins.
Please take care when replacing the contents that everything is as you found it. This is a little tricky but it can be done. Also beware of little muggles. A few live in the area but so far we have seen none near the spring. Near the spring itself, tree cover may make the GPSr a little erratic so if you are unlucky you may have to resort to the clue.
Many thanks to Holywell farm for granting permision to place this cache.
