The Horsingdon Transmissions No.148: The Thing from the Well
Between the Ebury Way and Croxley Moor sits a small section of sedgy marshland. One section of this has recently dried up due to the hot weather, revealing the large circular arefact shown above: a piece of masonry of ancient provenance, and which looks like the capstone to a well.
As far as I am aware, no formal archaeological investigation has been undertaken with a view to determining the age or provenance of the capstone - or, indeed, as to what what lies underneath it. The question remains, then, as to how such an object came in to being, and for what purpose...
However, in relation to the accounts of something monstrous stalking Croxley Moor at night, one cannot help but wonder whether something best left undisturbed has been roused from its slumber from the chthonic deeps below Horsingdon. This being the case, further questions come to mind: how was such an awakening affected? And, given the proximity of a mysterious and secretive government installation, was the calling forth of whatever haunts the Moor at night unintentional...or deliberate?
