In co-operation with Lielvārde municipality, a well was built in Lēdmane near the parish house. The well was bricked with small broken Latvian boulder finishing slabs. A calibrated 10x10x5 cm Latvian cobblestone was laid in one row around the perimeter. Masonry is still largely handmade and therefore requires both knowledge and some experience. Therefore, the well in this object was bricked with slightly deepened seams. Seams of equal width were formed between the stone slabs. Each stone was chopped and sawn with special stone tools. In this way, the well acquired an even style of masonry, as a result of which the well was highlighted on the background of the courtyard of the common parish house. At the end of the masonry work, a woodworker was engaged, who built a new wooden roof for the well. During the work, a water intake roller was also left in the well. Which in turn shows its functionality even now.

- Small irregularly shaped stone slabs:
Side lengths: 7-20 cm
