At the bottom of Wound Way there is a well that is widely held to be bottomless. Certainly torches or lamps dropped into the maw fall without sound until the light is lost in distance. Ropes and chains lowered into the well find no bottom. This has become a popular place to dispose of unwanted items: cursed trinkets, embarrassing correspondence, or, given the dangerous character of the neighborhood, bodies. Curiously, a bucket lowered to a depth of 15 feet comes up filled with brackish but drinkable water.
