My submission for the #2019picoftheweek challenge title: All’s Well
For details of #2019picoftheweek challenge see MariaAntonia
This magnificent well sits beside the main Norwich to Dereham road, at the corner of Longwater Lane in Costessey. Despite misinformation to the contrary, it is not a sacred well but of quite modern origin, believed constructed by French prisoners of war (according to Norfolk County Council’s Heritage site, but then they date it to 1820). As a child, I remember a ricketty wooden door at the back, peeping through it to spy the ferns that grew from the damp brickwork inside. It has since been secured.
