NS4957 : Road-side well

near to Nether Kirkton, East Renfrewshire, Great Britain

Road-side well
Road-side well
This is all that remains of a natural spring set into the wall seen here on the right hand side. It lost its tap and cast iron front when it was vandalised in the 1980s. I heard it referred to locally as Johnny-blue's well. There is a reference to "Johnny Blue" in "The Annals of Barrhead".
