Description:
Well. A deep circular well, 125cm diameter, still filled with water and located at the bottom of the modern dirt track/road. The well shaft is lined with field stones as far down as could be seen, and its opening is covered with a square concrete plinth, 100 x 100cm x 30cm high, that has a square opening into the well, 60 x 60cm. The square opening is covered with a modern square steel plate hatch door. It was 290cm down to the top of the water in the well. Below the well, the ground becomes a small ravine that is very steep, thickly vegetated with linden and plane trees, and difficult to access. This well was probably used by the Turkish forces according to the historians.
