English: Poxwell (or Pokeswell as it is pronounced and often found written), is a hamlet in South Dorset located approximately 6 miles east of Weymouth. The current population of the village is around 50. The name originates from the ‘Pokes well’ – a well dating from the period when occupied by the Romans in the 1st century which is located on a hillside in the village. In 1989, English Heritage excavated a site nearby to this and found ruins of a settlement dating to around the same period, in which various artefacts were found.
