Well house with well head gear. Late C18. Timber mechanism in an open
fronted brick building with a half hipped tiled roof. The well head
winding gear is hand operated from a platform on the right side. An iron
cranked handle turns a large open spoked timber wheel on a timber frame
which engages large and small wooden cog wheels mounted on iron and
timber axles. An iron toothed timber wheel over which the lifting chain
passed is thereby set in motion. (Branch Johnson The Industrial
Archaeology of Hertfordshire, 1970: Pevsner 1977).
