Dear diary, I am really excited as today Bill and I are off to #binsey #Oxfordshire
to visit a #treacle #well
... How yummy does that sound!
Apparently the well appeared when #StFrideswide
prayed to #margaret
for healing waters with which to heal the sight of an 8th Century Mercian King.
King Elfgar lost his sight after lustily perusing the chaste Frideswide.
She took potty on the lust old man, after her prayers she used the waters to heal his sight.
On getting there though we found that it wasn't really treacle, but water in that we'll, for some reason they had decided to be very misleading by using treacle well as a term for curative ointment not as in sweet sticky yummy sugary treacle.
Oh well I did find out that Binsey also had a treacle mine... Yum
That though just means that they had mines with pools of water in which a golden syrup tasting algae grew.
Talk about misleading... It was though a great day out!
