Tyne and Wear HER(4909): Elswick, King James Well - Details
Elswick, King James Well
Water Supply and Drainage
Water Storage Site
This well is first shown on a plan of c.1850, and the water from it is described as spring water. It is thought likely to be the King James Well referred to in the original deeds for the 1778 Lead Works (HER ref. 4116) partnership. Access to water from this well was part of the reason for the original location of the lead works.
