I have recently come across an an interesting person who told me about healing wells at the end of old houses, and been told there where magical!. I have only just wakend up other the last few months and this is all new to me and some of it can be scary at times. so any info to do with this and where to begin with going down this path of magic. im am a bit afreid of what is happening to me so any help would be greatfull.
I would be really sceptical on the matter and I'm quite a believer in many things. You'd best be careful trying some of the water in these wells, the amount of bacteria that can sometimes build up in them is horrendous.... more likely to get sick that magickally cured :) Still the thought IS intriguing. It may have some truth to it, but best research everything thoroughly and dont drink any water that hasnt been tested. Such things to exist would be massive money makers in this age.
Thank you for your post's, its hard to find any info about these and how the house's where built, i did read a book about it when i was a child but can't remember what it was called and can't find a thing now, oh well lol

In general the well at the end of an old house was just a well from which to draw water. Some old houses also had rainwater cisterns at the end of the house to catch and store rainwater. My old house (built in 1816) had just such a cistern under the end of the kitchen wing.
On the other hand, the idea of "healing wells" has been around for a long time. You might look for information on wells in Ireland dedicated to St. Brighid. In addition, the baths at Aquae Sulis (modern Bath) were thought to have healing properties well up through the 1800's. And the Chalice Well in Glastonbury is still a pilgrimage site for those seeking healing.
