Saint Mary-Le-Wigford Parish Church Water Conduit

This is interesting, it looks like a tomb, but its not! Its in the grounds of Saint Mary-le-Wigford Parish Church in Lincoln town centre (between the railway station and level crossing). The photographs show the front, one side and back (the other side couldn't be photographed clearly because of a wall!). The back appears to have a small wooden door, which stops me thinking it is a tomb. It was built by the inhabitants of the South ward of Lincoln in 1540, it is believed to have been built with fragments of The Whitefriars, which originally stood on the site of St. Marks Railway station.
