Is there a well in your garden?

Castlethorpe Historical Society is gathering information on all of the wells in the village. Most will obviously be located in the gardens of Castlethorpe’s older properties. So if you have a well on your property, or you know of someone else who has one, please let Mick Mullens know so that the Society can collate a map and plan to help with its survey on Old Castlethorpe.

You can contact Mick on the Castlethorpe Village Facebook page or email him at brassmichael@yahoo.co.uk
