Antique stone well-head with iron gantry
Antique stone well-head with iron gantry. The lower section is built up with stone and reclaimed bricks, so its overall height can be decided upon in advance, and extra stone or bricks can be supplied. The circular rim is made of French limestone, into which the wrought iron gantry is embedded. The gantry still has it’s cast iron winding wheel (see the photo) which would need re-fitting to get it back into operation for pulling up water buckets from a deep well.
Interior diameter : 104 cm (41 inches); Exterior diameter : 174 cm (69 inches)
