Owzat?



OK, maybe it's just me, but I can't pass by this building without thinking of a game of cricket, "Well caught, old chap". It is, however, the site of the ancient well that gave Clerkenwell its name. If you peer through the windows you can just about see it, it was rediscovered during building works in the 20's.

The Fleet was apparently known for its wells - there are quite a few along the lower reaches.

It's a fascinating river and I recently had the pleasure of a guided tour from Highgate to Blackfriars where it empties into the Thames.

ha ha.. and given the high the English team is in presently, and the drubbing we received (perhaps deservedly at that), u have every reason to be reminded of cricket especially now !!

That information caused an "Ah (that's why it's called that!)".
