Built probably in the first half of the C19 but really undatable. The basin is stained red as if the water has a high iron content.
Well covered with a domed stone roof. Entrance in dressed limestone with a keyed arched head and a coping over which is partially missing.
Arched stone vault.
Included as a part of an unusual and extremely attractive local water supply system, also having group value with the adjacent pond.
