A village well near the River Lozova

Village Wells

Visit several old village wells located on the northeastern outskirts of the village.
There are more than ten meters deep, but are shallow now for there is less and less water.
It is connected with a lot of surface coalmining going on around the village.
By surface coalmining I mean quickly formed "coalmines" aimed at extracting coal from the surface layers. They dig into the soil and make mole tunnels where they get coal. It’s a very dangerous and not technologically protected work. After a tunnel is exhausted, they fill it with rocks and soil and proceed further.
Now there are a lot of debates as to the necessity of such "black coalmining".

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
