A little further on Mr Monkey came to two interesting things. On one side of the path there was a wishing well built to look like one of the well-heads built when the natural springs were active. On the other side of the path a plaque instructed Mr Monkey to "Behold Bogs Field". Bogs Field was the old name of the Valley Gardens; 36 of Harrogate's 88 natural springs used to bubble up here, until they decided that flower beds would look and smell nicer.
