Lady Anne’s Well at Howley (West Yorkshire UK) is named after Lady Anne Savile who was reputedly savaged to death by wild animals there. In the 19th century, it was also the site where the locals gathered to drink the waters of the spring that reputedly ran in a multitude of colours at six in the morning.
Yet what we know about Lady Anne is remarkably small. Most of the ‘facts’ are nothing of the sort and the first record we have of her well being visited on a Palm Sunday occurs 150 years after she died.
