After years of road renovation in the centre of Kington, the ‘W’ which once marked the site of the medieval town well, is now buried under layers and layers of resurfacing material.
Join our campaign to bring back Kington’s ‘W’.
Water is important and if we hide it away, it makes it very difficult to check on its quality and keep it clean. In medieval Kington, the town’s water well was at the centre of the town and it created a social meeting place for the exchange of news and ideas.
On a wall close to the site, a sign reads :
Nearly all campaigns take a lot of enthusiasm and often pressure to see them through. If you have a bit of both, let’s get together at Border Bean to work out what needs to be done to return this famous Kington road mark.
If you know what you need to achieve
and your aims overlap with our charity work.
If you enjoy collaborating with positive people
who put energy and heart into everything they do.
If you feel that a close association with World of Water
will support your own growth, we should be talking with you.
