Roadside well in Lumb Lane, Almondbury
As many people will know I’ve been interested in the historic wells and water troughs of West Yorkshire for many years. It does, however, bother me that basic utilitarian wells seem to be disregarded amongst all the chapter about holy wells. Earlier this year I had an article on the subject published in the Archaeological Form Journal and the editor has given me permission to reproduce it on this website.

Finds work at Cobden
In June of this year I spent a very pleasant couple of days working with children at Cobden Primary School on the outskirts of Leeds (West Yorkshire, UK). The project consisted of several elements – a garden pottery survey, some classroom based work and a small-scale excavation in the school grounds. I’ve now completed the report on the excavation element of the project which details the finds which were made. For a more general reader the report also includes a summary of the history of the area around the school.
