844-1/3/248 Well House in Robins Wood Hill
Country Park at NGR SO 840 156


Well head or cistern built above a spring which formerly
supplied water to the Well Cross (qv), at a lower level on the
east side of the hill. Possibly C12, ie the same date as the
Well Cross for the Benedictine Abbey of St Peter, or C13.
Built of dressed oolitic limestone slabs held by iron cramps;
a low rectangular structure with a long slab on each side, and
a slab infilling the north end, all supporting a cover or roof
slab approximately 2m long and 23cm thick which oversails the
open south end; the opening protected by three vertical bars
inset between the roof slab and a stone sill at ground level;
the top of the roof slab has low pitched slopes to each side
of a central longitudinal ridge. The wall slabs are believed
to be set above a brick pit about 1m deep into which the
spring fed through an 8cm pipe.
HISTORY: see Well Cross (qv)
