NOTES ON WHITWELL
Whitwell takes its name from the White Well, a place of pilgrimage during medieval times.
The well can still be seen down a track opposite the church.
The church was built in two parts and was made one in the 16th century when the dividing wall was pulled down.
The local pub, The White Horse Inn, claims to be the oldest on the island, with some of its walls dating back to the 15th century.
