The well at Honyaranoie

The temperature is almost stable as it comes from underground. So it is cool in summer and is warm in winter.

Dug well and a bucket

This type was used until about 1950. Put pulley on the ceiling and use a bucket to draw water. (The roof of the well has gone and this well cannot use now in Honyaranoie).Now there is no artisan of this type wall. They have been filled in and almost extinct.

hand pump

This type started from about 1910. After about 1950, the electric pump and waterworks have spread rapidly, so this type have diminished. Now they are still manufactured. They are useful for emergency as you don’t need electricity.
