SX 64 NW
Butter well opposite
Robins Cottage


Butter well. C19. Rubble. A small domed square enclosure, partly below
ground, with a large round buttress adjacent to the street, and a small curb
Wall to a C20 driveway. Stone steps lead down to an opening with wood slatted
gate to a limewashed interior having a square sunken well with fresh water and a
single slate shelf. These wells sometimes occur within buildings in the area;
this example is a well retained version, possibly for general use of the villa-
gers. With the donkey stable (qv) just to the north in the same street, this is
an interesting reminder of the earlier life of the village.
