Thanks Biggles.

I thought it looked familiar when I saw it on tv last night.

It was shown on the BBC TV show "Secret Britain" tonight. But take the claim of it being under the cricket ground with a pinch of salt !

Almost certainly late 17th century. There was a write up of the site in the Kent Archaeological Society Journal last year.

There is a chalkwell in Sheldwych where the shaft is accessed via a lid in the front path of a house. Below the 3 chambers are in good condition.
