SJ5359 : The well at Beeston Castle

taken 7 years ago, near to Beeston, Cheshire, Great Britain

The well at Beeston Castle
The well at Beeston Castle
The castle well, over 100 metres deep and one of the deepest in any English castle. This was traditionally the place where King Richard II concealed his treasure from his pursuing enemies in 1399.
Many determined efforts to explore the well have discovered no treasure, though the most recent (in 1976) did reveal mysterious openings leading from the well shaft.
