It's the original well / water source of the property. When the house was extended the well was fitted with a glass top and became part of the interior space. It is mysterious...and a bit spooky even with the light on inside it.

Helen, I really thought it is a really well done carpet :)

They got a light inside their former well? What a funny idea!

We got an area pub with a rather similar thing as the house sits n the foundations of a fortified house from the dark ages, but it is deliberatly very rustic with the whole medieval well sporting beams and bucket as centerpiece in an old keep basement to rent as room for events. Regular people not prebooking the bar can go there only on the anual day of listed places sometimes, so I once saw it. They too got a glass in the well which is much larger than this one but inobtrusive somewhat below the rim, guess they simply rued to climb down any further for cleanup.
