Absorb the peaceful atmosphere of this timeless place here in the heart of the gardens. The cover of the well donated by famous Glastonbury archaeologist, Frederick Bligh Bond in 1919, features a wrought iron vesica piscis, with a lance passing through it and is based on a mediaeval design.

The Vesica Piscis is an ancient sacred symbol of two interlocking circles where the circumference of one circle goes through the center of another identical circle. Its geometry symbolises a union, of heaven and earth or spirit and matter and appears throughout the gardens.
