In Grey's field (Sea Road) there was a spring well. One day a priest was going past he was very thirsty He got into the field and took a drink of water, then he blessed the well and went away. When Mr. Grey heard the well was blessed he was angry and he filled it up with stones. After a month or two the well sprang up again and is still there. Cottages have been built on the land near the well.
