History of Whittling Well

A Georgian structure comprising of a stone arch flanked by stone piers. This was built to be a watering point for animals and also to serve as a pumping station for fresh water. 
The ground around the well still gets boggy in wet weather but in times of exceptionally wet weather you can find the reservoir to the front full of water. This acts as an haven for small animals, birds and amphibians and is in need of restoration to retain its splendour.
