Well discovered in Norwich could date back to the Middle Ages

A 25-metre well has been found next to a Norwich pub, and city historians believe it could be an important find.

A plumber discovered the well by the outside wall at the Trowel and Hammer in St Stephen’s Road, which has been undergoing a makeover.

The pub has been run by brothers Ilir and Ben Duraj for about six years and is
believed to date back to at least 1700.

Ilir Duraj said: “The plumber was doing the mains outside and suddenly came rushing in to tell everyone he had found this well. It was quite a surprise. We have measured it as about 25m deep and 2m wide.”
