This new mews was named in 1991 after one of the ancient wells in St Sidwells that supplied the city through the Underground Passage system with water. The spring was first tapped by the Roman garrison, which ran an aqueduct around the north of the city, to enter through the wall close to the Harlequins Shopping Centre. It was the well that supplied St Anne's Well Brewery in Lower North Street with water. The water was piped along the Southern Region Railway line.
Other wells in the area include St Sidwells and Headwell Mead or Lion's Holt.
