The Well at the Blind Lane Bray

The Well at the Blind Lane

The spring/well is situated on what is known as the Blind Lane/Love Lane
in the Diamond Valley/Slang area on the outskirts of Bray on the Upper Dargle
Road. It is culverted into the Countybrook stream/river. The Diamond Valley area was largely
common land as can be seen from the attached old map. According to local accounts this was historically a place where travellers camped, sometimes  in large numbers.

This leaflet was compiled with the co-operation of the Bray Travellers and gives a brief history of this area and also how and why  the plaque was erected by Bray Tidy Towns.
