Becket’s Well is situated on Bedford Road opposite Beckets Park (pictured above). At a point during his life having fled from Northampton Castle, Thomas stopped at a spring on the outskirts of the town to refresh himself. This well later became known as Becket’s Well and was recognised as such in 1843 when the local council built the present stone structure to mark its place. It is said that the water had the power to ease blindness.
