Investigating the site

Searching for a drain, according to the plan it should be here 🤔 As part of understanding what is on site and making the facilities we have as useful as possible, Chris P and Phil have relocated a drain run and a manhole.

Site Interpretation

Chris P. has been busy laying paviours in the grass area to the South of the 1870s building. He has marked the position of the pilot well which was the first well to be sunk on site and also the route of the Hanch tunnel which runs under the middle of Lichfield and eventually feeds water into the pilot well. The pilot well is connected by underground tunnels to the four other wells on site, from which water was then pumped.
