Market Well. Given in 1875, the superstructure alone would appear to be of this
date, the lower part possibly late Georgian. Flights of steps lead to the octagonal
sandstone structure of Tuscan columns on pedestals supporting an entablature with
metopes and triglyphs. Gabled superstructure of brick with sandstone roundels and
fish-scale tiles surmounted by a round-arched wooden cupola and weathervane. Beneath
this structure a stone pedestal and urn covering the well. Brass plaque inscribed
'This pump was given for public use by Mrs Lawson of Aldborough Manor AD 1875. The
well is 256 ft deep.' Iron grill and bracket but pump has been removed. Coat of arms
to west side of superstructure with following inscription. 'Erected 1875 by many
friends in memory of the kindly virtues of Andrew Sherlock Lawson of Aldborough Manor
Esq. Born 1st September 1824 died 22 May 1872.'
