Thatched shelter
Thatched shelter, taken 9 years ago
This octagonal thatched shelter, decorated for the festive season in late November, was erected in 1913. It is situated in the middle of the Cawston Road - Penfold Street junction; the view is east towards Penfold Street. This shelter houses the John Soame Memorial Pump.

Before the event of a public water supply in 1938, water had to be drawn from private wells. After John Soame's death in 1911, a public well was given to the town by his uncle. The artesian well is 52 metres (170 ft) deep and its roof is thatched with Norfolk reed.
