Warren Cottage well

Slightly late this month as I have been sorting out the effects of Windows 10 on our computers here at “Adams Field”!
Luckily everything went relatively smoothly and we are now able to update some of the pages.

The first section to be dealt with is Wells, in Memories from the main Contents menu which, itself, has been slightly re-arranged (Upper & Lower Froyle maps and links have changed sides)

This month’s photograph was actually taken a year ago, just over the road from us, at “Warren Cottage”, which has just been totally re-furbished.
During the building work this well, some 50 feet deep, was uncovered - the Project Manager is holding the plumb line which finally stopped in some water at the bottom.
I still haven’t got my head round how they actually dug the well in the first place.

I have augmented the Wells section in Memories with more details of wells in the village.
