The source, known as the Upwey Wishing Well has been a tourist attraction from Victorian times, and remains so to this day with a tea room on the site and beautiful water gardens.
Upwey is very picturesque with the Old Mill on the banks of the river and with the beautiful countryside surrounding the village you could easily forget that Weymouth is just 4 miles away.
