St Helen's Well

A secret spring. Located in Thetford Forest at the foot of a large pit, it sneaks through a tunnel underneath the railway line and into the Little Ouse river. A medieval church called St Helen's once stood above it, and a long lost medieval community probably lived there. I once found a sherd of 'grimston green' pottery nearby. Magical, mystical? How old is the spring?
