Haslingfield: the Wellhouse
Haslingfield: the Wellhouse
Wellhouse Meadow is one of two surviving fragments of the Saxon Great Green. It was acquired by the Parish Council in 1976, to be held in perpetuity as a village amenity. The brick parts of the wellhouse date from the 17th century and the wooden parts were renovated in 1978. The well inside is 2m wide, but blocked with fallen masonry, so its depth is unknown. Remains of its hand pump survive. The fence separates the main part of the meadow from the dog-free section in which I stood to take the picture.
