Iron age well sites at Minnis Bay

Following an article in the Isle of Thanet Gazette on the archaeological digs at Minnis Bay  conducted by  Antoinette Powell Cotton I contacted the Powell Cotton Museum as they requested anyone with memories of the digging to come forward . I then met up with the archaeologist who is coordinating the research.
 I received my brief and I went walking and bingo I came across this. It is a Iron age well listed as MED 39 and has been back filled after excavation with granite pegs. This photograph confirms its existence to the map and information they have.
Being  archaeological sensitive  sites I have no intention of disturbing them as my brief is to just re confirm their existence for modern data processing.
