The original Camber Well, which gave it’s name to the London district of Camberwell, has been been unearthed in a woman’s backyard. It is thought to be between 2-3,000 years old.

“I was only about two feet out, which shows the incredible accuracy of the maps. Four or five feet under the lawn there was a big void, which was exciting to find.

“It is possible the well has gone dry but I would be surprised if there wasn’t water down there. It will be expensive to excavate but I would love to find out.”

Mrs Morrin, a former midwife, said: “It is amazing to have such a piece of ancient history in my garden.”
