THE WELL - "ŠTEPIH NA ČAPLJO"
||The subpannonian type of a well with a lifting mechanism
called "čaplja" can be found in the area expanding from Vienna to Romania.
In the villages underneath the mountain Donačka gora these types of wells
could be built at farms in the low-lying areas, where they came upon water
after only a few meters of digging. With a stone, functioning as a counterpoise,
fixed to the lever, lifting up a bucketful of water was fairly easy. The
wooden bucket has a bung which is there to make sure that the water doesn't
spill while its being pulled up.
