The Well was used by villagers to collect drinking water until 1948 when a mains water supply was connected to Stanhoe . It was situated in the Docking Road outside the gate at the house next to The Grange, called Moray Cottage.
Mrs Blackburn talks about water and electricity supplies being connected to the village in the recordings section of the website.
Many houses had old fashioned water carts which could be pulled by a horse in the shafts, living outside the village itself at Mill House my family did.
