Well on Cann Street
Well on Cann Street
A plaque on the well wall reads "This is the last working well on Cann Street. It is shown on the deeds of No. 38 as circa 1731. It was last used to draw drinking water in the drought of 1976. The well has never been known to run dry and refills in 30 mins. Despite the obvious later additions the original stonework and steps are clearly visible. Please treat with respect this unique historical feature of the old coach road to Tottington."
