Listing Text


6/237 Well


Well. Probably C18. Battered walls of mostly vertically set granite rubble.
Plan: the well is cut into the side of the hill, the cranked-plan chamber roofed with
granite lintels. In front is a walled cranked-on-plan entrance with a flight of 8
steps leading down to the well doorway. More steps within the chamber down into the
water. The well is fed by a spring from the surrounding hillside.
An-unaltered C18 well unusually far underground for a structure of this type.
