The Note refers to an ancient lead cistern removed from Waddeton House near Stoke Gabriel in the late 1900s. The author was afforded an opportunity to photograph and describe it, as well as speculate on its origin while examining the collection of ancient deeds at the house. Waddeton House is now a scheduled historic building set in fine gardens. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
