Thames Water were carrying out work to replace a water main near the Crocodile Antiques shop and Starbucks on Muswell Hill Broadway when they made the surprising discovery last week.

Haringey Council are in talks with English Heritage and hope they will examine the well in more detail.

Temporary traffic lights were put in place while construction workers dug up the road to uncover the well, but it is believed they will be removed imminently.

The water mains replacement is part of an ongoing programme by Thames Water taking place throughout Muswell Hill.

The name “Muswell Hill” is believed to derive from a spring or well called the “Mossy Well.”
