Ceremonial counties of England collective name for areas, in England, to which a Lord Lieutenant is appointed

The ceremonial counties, also referred to as the lieutenancy areas of England, are areas of England to which a Lord Lieutenant is appointed. Legally the areas in England, as well as in Wales and Scotland, are defined by the Lieutenancies Act 1997 as counties and areas for the purposes of the lieutenancies in Great Britain, in contrast to the areas used for local government. They are also informally known as geographic counties, as often representing more permanent features of English geography, and to distinguish them from counties of England which have a present-day administrative function.

There is a holy well within the parish of Tibberton, marked on the 1:50 000 map and signposted on the roads. The well has given its name to the district round about, but is not easy to locate on the ground. A gully takes one from the road, turns to a path, and the well is in a little wood. Water from the spring has carved out a little stream running down the short distance to the River Meese. [1]

Holy well a spring or other small body of water revered either in a Pagan or Christian context, often both

A holy well or sacred spring is a spring or other small body of water revered either in a Christian or pagan context, sometimes both. The term holy well is commonly employed to refer to any water source of limited size, which has some significance in the folklore of the area where it is located, whether in the form of a particular name, an associated legend, the attribution of healing qualities to the water through the numinous presence of its guardian spirit or Christian saint, or a ceremony or ritual centred on the well site. In Christian legend, the water is often said to have been made to flow by the action of a saint, a familiar theme especially in the hagiography of Celtic saints.
