Source/Archive record SYO2379 - Pikeing Well, New Walk

Title Pikeing Well, New Walk


The archaeological trenches identified the flagged floor of Pikeing Well to be in good condition and a centrally placed stone lined well pool which still filled with water. The "open receiver" well was also located and found to have been back-filled with its original stonework. An iron rail gate found sealing the well pool was probably not an original feature but simply a device to make the well safe after its closure by the Ministry of Health in 1929.
