Barton Well (spout, shelter and 2 troughs)


Water-spout, shelter and 2 troughs 1782? of stone. Rectangular
troughs cut from massive sandstone blocks. The rear part of the
troughs is roofed (about 0.70 metre above their rims) with 2 large
slabs of stone supported by 3 corbel-shaped vertical slabs. An iron
spout feeds the west trough. The troughs face away from the road; the
stone retaining wall at their rear is beneath the back of the
pavement. Probably built when the road was turnpiked in 1782.
