There stands a cliff of sheer sandstone on the Cheshire (UK) plains with a natural spring which has formed itself into a well that many say is a wishing well.
It is said that 'Merlin' (See Merlin) once lived here and spoke with a farmer who he convinced to give him a horse for a purse of gold pieces. Legend has it that Merlin opened some magical gates on the side of the rock to the sound of thunder, telling the farmer that here sleeps Arthur with his Knights and their horses, of which they were one short, so that they might return again when England needed them. The farmer took the gold and ran from the gates terrified. The gates have never been seen since.
