|Description ||The Wizard's Well at Alderley Edge.|
|How mystical can a well be??????? Undoudbtedly enchanted|
|I can see some sort of writing in the bottom part |
|If you click on the yellow site name you will go to the main information page and see that the writing says 'Drink of this and take thy fill for the water falls by the Wizhard's will'|
|Read Alan Garners "Weirdstone of Brazingamen" (Wrong Spellin!) for great childrens story about Alderley Edge and the wizard.|

|Also worth checking out is the Edge itself - spectacular views of the Cheshire plain and evidence has been found of human occupation going back to the Mesolithic. There is also a cave/mine working on the Edge that I think is known as the Devil's Grave but was also called the Witche's House when I was a kid. In the woods is a stone circle that is apparently a 19th century folly called the Druids Circle. Just below the Edge are two open caves. Dont visit Alderley Edge at Halloween - it's full of drunk Chavs and teen Goths !!!|
| If anyone could give me ANY information on the kind of people who go to Alderley Edge at Halloween and what rituals are performed and what the police has done to prevent this - I would be SOOOOOO grateful!!!! PLEASE!!!! Thanks! |
