Wells of Yesteryear

Awhile back my wife and I were out enjoying Nature when we came upon an old Spring Fed Well. Seeing it my wife and I sat down and ate our lunch, with our minds wondering how many people used to come to it for water. We even had a drink, as the water inside was crystal clear. We enjoy seeing things like that, so I thought I would share. GW

You Can see where the water on the left comes in from a spring.
Wood Barrel used to catch water.  Has lid to keep things out.
