Well (238) – Onchan


Well, visible from Governor’s Road, Onchan.  Likely a domestic well.  Stone construction, looks in good condition from limited observation.

The well is not indicated on either the 6″ or 25″ OS maps but it can be viewed from the pavement through iron railings.

Thank you to Amy Chie for telling me about this.


The well is visible on Governor’s Road, Onchan, just past the bus stop and next to the bus shelter.  Look for iron railings and you will see it on the other side of these.  It is at the side of Coutts House but I am unsure if it forms part of that property or another to the side of it.
