NS4276 : Old well

near to Bellsmyre, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Old well
Old well
The low grassy mound at the centre of the photograph marks what was once a well; it is annotated as such on OS maps up until at least 1918. The well is still there, though long disused: the mound shown here is its cover, now almost entirely overgrown with turf.

Visible in the middle distance is the south-western part of the fence that surrounds the disused NS4276 : Garshake Reservoir (old OS maps show another well beside the eastern corner of the reservoir). In the background, beyond the pylons, are the hills on the far side of the River Clyde.
