84 yr old Mabel Williams had always wanted to know the depth of her well at Cosy Cottage, Challock. After calling workmen in to replace the rotten wood cover, they dropped a brick into the well, which thudded on the bottom 9 seconds later. With the help of a physics master at an Ashford school, they calculated it could be around 1,000 ft deep – probably the deepest in Kent.
