Yandow well Yandow well Yandow well Yandow well Yandow well Yandow well
Pictures above: The Yandow exploratory oil/gas well in St. Albans was drilled to a depth of 4,500 feet in 1957. The well was drilled by the Henderson Company using a cable tool rig. Wooden blocks at the base of the derrick rotted and the derrick “settled” onto the well head, thus tipping it about 30 degrees. (1)
