St Baldred's Well, Preston

A little spring on the banks of the River Tyne at Preston, on the northeast edge of East Linton in East Lothian, St. Baldred's Well lies close to Preston Kirk, which was founded by the saint. The well supplied the Red Friars who had a monastery close by in the 13th century and remained a source of water for the residents of Preston into the 20th century.
