Abstract


There is a curiously shaped trough by the well in the north-east corner of Hazelton cross-roads which was originally used as a cooling-trough in the adjacent smithy for a considerable period. About forty years ago the trough was placed in its present position for use as a drinking-trough, as each cottage then kept a cow.
