This used to be a well. It was originally intended for supplying water to cattle. Discarded since a very long time now, a tree has slowly grown on the side of the shaft and it is shadowing the ruins of the old shack. A game reserve limit was nearby there sometimes ago. The obsolete sign still shows that there has been at this place a sanctuary where game hunting was not allowed.

Reserve de chasse

C'est un ancien puits. Il était là, au milieu des prés, pour abreuver les troupeaux.

Il a été abandonné depuis bien longtemps et un arbre a poussé au bord du trou encore béant, ombrageant les ruines de la cabane en brique.

Une réserve de chasse avait ses limites non loin de là.
La pancarte qui le signalait est encore accrochée. Elle rapelle que le gibier fut protégé dans ce petit coin de campagne.
