The village actually has a famous well in a private garden called St Eustace’s Well named after the Abbot of Flai – wherever that is.

“A woman is alleged to have drunk the water and then vomited up two black toads which changed into dogs then donkeys. She threw well water over them and they disappeared.” (Valerie Martin – Holy Wells in Kent. 1985)

Crikey… toads, then dogs and then disappearing donkeys… Maybe we’d best not sink too many boreholes!
