This timber-framed building in north-west Shropshire was built at the spot where in 1138 a spring is said to have gushed forth when the bones of St Winefride, a Celtic saint, rested here as they were being taken from their original burial place at Holywell in North Wales to their new place of rest at Shrewsbury Abbey.
The main part of the structure was built as a chapel in the late 15th century whilst the projecting gable and stone basins seen here were added later.
