Notes about this historic site

1 Well discovered during building work behind 23/25 Smith Street, Warwick. The W half was below the outer wall of No 25, but the E half had been uncovered by the removal of some 19th/20th century building material. The top 0.6m of the shaft was 19th century brick and an archway had been constructed over the W half. Below this the shaft went down another 2.7m vertically, where the sides were of rectangular masonry blocks. The diameter was c1m, but at the 2.7m mark the shaft fanned out. The water level was at c7m and the well was probably about 8.5m deep in total.
