There are frequent guided tours around site, conducted by a local volunteer.
Blow wells are artesian springs where water under pressure escapes from the chalk through structural weaknesses in the boulder clay.
The 4 blow wells used to provide water for Cleethorpes, but bore holes (on the same site) are now used to reduce the risk of contamination from the associated ponds (well, the kids do swim in them).
Howevever Tetney gets its water not from here but from a bore at Fulstow.
The hybrid Black Poplars in the photo were planted at the time the watercress beds were in use.
