The photographer's notes state: 'The house. The west (garden) front. The east arm of the moat in the foreground, with the old bridge (easterly span only) crossing it to the island'.

Well Hall was originally a 16th century moated manor house owned by the Roper Family. It was demolished in 1733 and replaced with Well Hall House, which was itself demolished in the summer of 1931. The grounds of the house, including the moat, became Well Hall Pleasaunce Public Park.

At the time this photograph was taken the house appears to have been unoccupied.
