WORK on refurbishing historic Sandhurst Well should get under way in the near future, Coun. John Mason told Sandhurst Town Council on Thursday.

Coun. Mason said it had been agreed that the top of the well would be removed first with every part numbered for renewal. Attempts could then be made to estimate the work that might be needed below ground level.

The councillor added that it was not known at present how deep the well was. The second stage could prove too expensive in which case it might have to be abandoned as a well.
