A well is an eye of the earth. In an attempt to improve vision, Xanthe Gresham and Nick Hennesey uncover the stories and songs of the UK’s lost watercourses and their even more lost goddesses.
Like a divining-rod incarnate, Xanthe Gresham has spent the last few years unearthing deities from Soho telephone boxes, Argentinean tango classes and middle class dinner parties. They’ve been airy, earthy and fiery – and this time they’ll be wet. This is metaphorical archaeology of the soul.
