Full Description

The 1st ed. 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1880 marks a roadside well on the east side of Belper Lane End, and depicts it as a long narrow structure divided into three with the long side parallel to the road. The field wall curves around to the rear of the feature. (1) The 2nd edition of c. 1900 no longer shows the compartmented structure and simply marks a 'P' for pump. (2) Nothing is depicted on the 3rd edition, although the field wall continues to curve around the site of the feature. (3) This is known locally as Dalley Wash. Local residents began to clear away the debris from this feature in 2009.
