Maharajah's Well

Welcome to the Atlas Obscura Community discussion of Maharajah’s Well in Stoke Row, England. Ask questions or share travel tips, experiences, pictures, or general comments with the community. For the story behind this place, check out the Atlas Obscura entry:

In addition to the well, the Maharaja also funded the creation of a cherry orchard nearby. The idea was that the revenue from selling the cherries would pay for the maintenance of the well, and the orchard would also provide an ornamental park for the village. The orchard and some of the cherry trees survive (and can be visited). Most of the ornamental features have been lost, but a few have been restored, including this splendid elephant.
