What's That Lassie? Timmy Fell In The What?
I went out into the back yard, today, for the first time this week, and got a little surprise...
There was a bit of a hole in the yard...
A nice, big, round brick-lined hole. I can't imagine it being a manhole, so I am assuming it is an abandoned well or cistern.
How big is it?
It's about 4 feet deep, 3 feet to the top of the bricks. My guess is that it was capped, years ago, and covered over. Our recent rains saturated the soil to the point that the weight caused it to collapse.
Now, I have to come up with about 2 cubic yards of material to fill the void.
