|The well sweep, with the cemented channel to conduct the drawn water to a cement lined tank to contain the water.|
|Thirsty cattle were welcome to drink the water|
The height of the sweep indicated the depth of the well. There was a saying in Tamil ' Aalakkinathukku neelath thulaa'.
This sweep was in active use at the 'Sivan Kovil' Point-Pedro in 2012 when I took this photo.
