This aspect of Droitwich fascinates me. The way I understand there are/were huge layers of salt underground and the water surging in the wells, would then be heavily salinated. But, how come that there were layers of salt so far inland in the first place? Must have been some geological movement that formed dams, etc etc. Anyhow - great shot.
....peter:): you ask the greatest questions Louis... the Droitwich Spa brine was discovered by the Romans but they found that the saline was too saturated for the baths... so the moved on to Bath where the saline was milder and found that it was healthier... it is my best guest guess that both were from the same layer of saline underground....petersmile
Work was never done!
....peter:): they sure had to work hard to produce salt from the saline flowing up into the wells Care... twas hard work for sure....petersmile
Bill took us to this place but being a Sunday it was closed but we were able to see some of this through the window.
....peter:): i took this photo through the window Brian... i was surprised how well it turned out....petersmile

....peter:): thank you Martin... i took this photo through the window... it was the only point of view that i had... i was surprised how well it turned out....petersmile

I know the building (I think!) but I've never seen inside. I like the drawing.
I'm not really a fan of black and white, but this is perfect, with perfect lighting. Suddenly, I've changed my mind about b & w.
A wonderful crisp shot with excellent tones. First rate, Peter.
