Notes about this historic site

1 Opposite the entrance to the drive of the manor house is a small green and on it a well-house, said to date from 1874, but of a late 17th century or early 18th century type. Three columns carry a stone dome and inside stands an urn. Is 1874 perhaps the date of re-erection?
2 Limestone with polygonal plinth and three columns supporting a dome with moulded surround and ball finial. Underneath, an urn with carved drapery and foliage. Urn stands on inscribed plinth. Lead trough. Lion-head spring to front.
