Well of Eight Echoes

by Administrator 29. December 2012 17:36

Despite the allure of its' name the Well of Eight Echoes located off the S2 is one of those attractions that leaves you scratching your head.  The well is a 1 foot plus wide steel pipe that apparently extends close to a hundred feet into the ground.

In its heyday before visitors filled it with pebbles and who knows what, you could yell down the opening and listen for a gradual decrescendo of echoes. 

There are a couple conflicting stories on the origin of the well; one is that the pipe is what's left of a fountain head from a failed cotton growing venture in the 1920's, while others claim it was an attempt at drilling for oil.

Either way it is worth a stop as you journey on to more interesting areas of the park; even if it is just a metal pipe sticking out of the ground.Wink
