  2. That is amazing. That looks like it was built by the convicts as well. They used to keep them in the wells whilst at night whilst they were building and so shaped the walls in this manner so that they couldn't climb out at night. Fascinating stuff Milli. Love it.

  6. Great shot. The house I grew up in had an old large covered cistern in the back. The top had a hole in it and we would drop rocks, sticks, etc in it. Thanks for looking at mine!

  14. Hi Milli, Really like the mixed stone brick in the building. A well and and cystern? Surprised that in many areas here in Calif we have not gone back to the 'old fashioned' idea of cysterns.

  15. I've never seen one like that! Did I read somewhere that this is your back yard? I've always been a huge fan of stone. Love it.

  23. Is it just me, or does water from a old well taste better??

    Great pic.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes that looks so very old fashioned. The structure too looks very old and sturdy, stones and mortar withstanding the weathers of time. http://barb4sun.multiply.com/journal/item/452

  25. What an unusual shape. Looks almost like a flying saucer ready to sail out of there. LOL

  28. It has fallen into disrepair nowadays. Sorry to say.

  29. How strange! They have a cement cap over it. Well better than here, they just leave them then years later kids fall down them and they wonder why. LOL You said I should maybe put a warning on mine? I know when it comes to what they are doing with the food here I do tend to go off. Sorry. LOL

  37. Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to visit and encourage with such interesting comments. As long as the water that goes into any tank or well is clean and covered and the well kept WELL the water is extremely wonderful to drink.
    This one was on a property and disused. Not sure how the water was as I did not try it. Thanks friends.
