  • Description

    "A small plaque on the stone slabs that surround the well reads: 'Bownas Beck Well restored by Witherslack Parish and the Lake District National Park Authority 1994'. There is water within the walls but no sign that the grateful villagers wash their clothes here. Perhaps they were indoors getting ready for another scintillating display of football prowess from England in Brazil?" Photo by Karl and Ali, 2014.
