Haven't been on in awhile even longer since I contributed. All the people I used to know on the site are gone as well. Learned alot listening to the stories ,techniques and history. Its a hobby that alot of people dont understand. I personally enjoy the history and craftmanship pf lost items. Anyway heres my new dig site. Lots of broken ones, including Dr Pepper king bottles.

Welcome back to the forum! I think I remember your name from reading old posts in the archives.

That's a bizarre place for a well or cistern, right beside a lake? That seems to run counter to the entire idea of wells and cisterns. Are you certain that's what it is? Certainly couldn't hurt to dig around a bit to see what's in there but I can't imagine you'll get far unless the water level drops. Did the water table massively rise in that spot over past decades or what?

Thank you for the welcome back. I don't think the water level changed this tree close to it would not have survived. Maybe the top layer of bricks washed away. My 19 yr old son was with me this time. He thought it would make a great pic until when he was inside i mentioned maybe a raccoon was above him

Its on a small creek. And yes its a sycamore. Good eye. Unusual for a tree around here. Figured digging 3 or 4 Ft can't hurt.
