Full Description

There are a number of wells still preserved in the viallge of Heage, mainly at the many small farms. The best example of a perfectly preserved well is at Home Farm on Ripley Road. Around 20m in depth, the well head consists of four upright slabs of gritstone, with a slightly larger capping slab. The side cheeks are drilled to take the windlass which is still in place [1993]. John Wesley is reputed to have visited, perhaps stayed, here, but this is only an oral history. Restoration work showed that at some time a thatched roof had been stripped and the roof raised. (1)
