Of late medieval date and Italian, and placed in a relationship with the SW garden when this was laid out, either contemporary with the later remodelling of Vaynol Hall, or during 1913 when there is reference to 'Garden Alterations' in the Estate Papers.


The fine Italian well head is used as an ornamental feature in the garden. It is made of one piece of pink marble, and circular in form with labels beneath an octagonal top, and retains sockets for the well hoist. The plinth is also octagonal. The sides are decorated with raised and waisted blank shields.

Reasons for Listing

Included for its intrinsic interest, and for group value with Vaynol Hall and the Classical Statue.
