Well (235) – Ballavarvane, St Marks


Well, Ballavarvane Farmhouse, St Marks.

This record is based on the following testimony:

(The well is) In floor of the back room of the farm house.  My granda and uncle both farmed here and would use the well to wash down the cow house as the farm was on a meter. My mum also remembers drawing water from the well during dry summers.

On the first 25″ OS map there is a Pump indicated at the farmhouse…perhaps this is the location of the same well referred to above?

The well is listed as both a farm well and domestic well.  It is unknown if it still exists.
