History

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.

Exterior

Well covered with a domed stone roof. Entrance in dressed limestone with a keyed arched head and a coping over which is partially missing.

Interior

Arched stone vault.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a part of an unusual and extremely attractive local water supply system, also having group value with the adjacent pond.
