Hi, m6! Thanks for looking into this...

I stumbled across that snippet on my search for more info, but unfortunately, the well is about 2 miles from teh church, so I don't think it's connected...

A friend of mine projected a line along a row of barrows with hillforts at teh end, and the church sits snugly slap-bang in the middle of them!

A conversation on this board a little while ago suggested the alignments were so due to trade routes or just the quickest point between 2 places, so I don't wanna go into any more "leyline" topics! So the church looks like it COULD have been built on something older - be it a fort, barrow, or whatever, due to it's crossing point of 2 old routes!
