Giggleswick


The ebbing and flowing well: legend tells how a nymph was being chased by a satyr who was overcome with lust. The nymph prayed to the gods and was saved by being turned into a well - famous for healing. The only thing that remained of the nymph was her eternal breath that causes the well to ebb and flow like the tides.

The well is also the place where the horse of a famous local highwayman called John Neviston drank, giving it the power to leap over a cliff top, now called Nevison's leap, during a daring escape.
