Five Wells is a chambered tomb and scheduled ancient monument on Taddington Moor in the Peak District. Three stones mark the main chamber, which has been dramatically reduced; a second less well-preserved chamber is to the west. Access can be had on foot via a permitted path from Pillwell Gate to the west.[2] The mound was excavated by Thomas Bateman in 1846.[3]
