Barton Well


Type Other

     Water spout, shelter and two troughs, 1782? of red sandstone.The troughs are rectangular, cut from massive sandstone blocks. The rear part of the troughs is roofed (about 0.70 m above their rims) with two large slabs of stone supported by three corbel-shaped vertical slabs. An iron spout feeds the west trough.The troughs face away from the road; the stone retaining wall at the rear is beneath the back of the pavement.
     The well was probably built when the road was turnpiked in 1782.
