Full Description

This was built with sub-circular stone (approximately 150mm x 100mrn x 50mm) bonded with a pale light yellow mortar. The stones were roughly coursed to 3.08mOD (0.35m below ground level). At this point a combination of much larger stones (0.35m x 0.35m x 0.30m) and chalk lumps were employed in a much more haphazard fashion - suggesting repair/renovation work undertaken at a later date. Overall the well was 1.70m in diameter with a wall thickness of 0.26m. Its depth was 1.30m but was continuing beyond the vertical limit of excavation. The fill was a dark brown silty loam fill (1017), (S1).
