TL7804 : Buell Well - Danbury Common

taken 12 years ago, near to Danbury, Essex, Great Britain

Buell Well - Danbury Common
Buell Well - Danbury Common
At the side of the footpath which runs along the eastern edge of Danbury Common is Buell Well. This provided the drinking water for Danbury in the 18th and early 19th Centuries.
On the right hand side of the photograph the foundations of the old pumping station are still visible.
On the left hand side of the photograph it is just possible to see the pipe from the well, from which spring water gushes all year round, even in drought conditions. (If you a fancy a drink on a hot summer's day, do not take water from the pool below the pipe as this is mixed with ditch water!)
