Well head southwest of St Helen's Church porch, Main Street, Etwall, an early 19th century structure.
Comparison of early 20th century maps with modern ones indicate that there have been considerable changes to this area in the 20th century. The well head appears originally to have been set back from the road, in wooded ground, with a trough by the road. With the change in layout, the well head now stands by the road. (1)
