The wedding of Miss E. Bain & Private S.Tower. in Grewelthorpe Church Feb. 1944.
Report in Ripon Gazette September 1974.
While excavating the foundations for an extension to Cliff Cottage, Grewelthorpe, a local builder T.Bain.[Thomas Moore Bain] uncovered a deep shaft just to the west of the cottage. The shaft, about 4ft 6ins. in diameter, is at least 30ft deep and hewn out of solid rock except for a 2ft section near the top of which is walled with sandstone. At intervals there are square cavities holding traces of some sort of wooden structure and near the bottom, there is a cupboard like space hewn out of the stone.
The discovery recalled for Mr. Bain an old legend concerning a tunnel which was supposed to run from Grewelthorpe to nearby Hackfall – or to the old Roman site at Hill Top Farm.
“I remember as lads in the village,” said Mr Bain, “trying to find the passage with spades and strangely enough we did discover huge stones similar to those which covered the shaft. We could not move the stones, but there appeared to be a cavity beneath.”
A well seems to be the answer, but few local people have ever known a well shaft sunk through solid rock. However Mrs K.M.Bumstead a lecturer in history at Ripon Training College, thinks the shaft has been a well. The feeder springs have probably been diverted by natural causes over the years.
