Water Supply and Drainage
Water Storage Site
In February 2005 a large brick-lined well was discovered in the yard to the rear of No. 3 Rosella Place during conversion works. The well was 1.5 metres in diameter and at least 5 metres deep, still with fresh water in the bottom. The sides of the well were supported near the bottom with timber beams. To be left on view as part of the development. Presumably same date as the house (1820) to serve the whole terrace of houses. Not shown on Ordnance Survey maps.
