Until late hundreds of years, all fake wells were pumpless hand-dug wells of differing degrees of convention, and they remain an extremely vital wellspring of consumable water in some rustic creating regions where they are routinely dug and utilized today. Their essentialness has prepared various artistic references, exacting and non-literal, to them, including the Christian Bible story of Jesus gathering a lady at Jacob's well (John 4:6) and the "Ding Dong Bell" nursery rhyme around a feline in a well.

Hand-dug wells are unearthings with distances across extensive enough to oblige one or more persons with scoops burrowing down to beneath the water table. They could be lined with laid stones or block; expanding this coating upwards above the ground surface to structure a divider around the well serves to decrease both defilement and damages by falling into the well. A more advanced strategy called caissoning utilization strengthened solid or plain solid precast well rings that are brought down into the opening. A well-burrowing group burrows under a cutting ring and the well segment gradually sinks into the aquifer, whilst securing the group from breakdown of the well bore.

Hand dug wells give a shabby and low-tech answer for entering groundwater in provincial areas in creating nations, and may be fabricated with a high level of group cooperation, or by neighborhood business visionaries who work under control dug wells. They have been effectively unearthed to 60 meters (200 ft). Hand dug wells are economical and low tech (contrasted with penetrating) as they utilize generally hand work for development. They have low operational and upkeep costs, to some extent in light of the fact that water might be concentrated by hand safeguarding, without a pump. The water is frequently hailing from an aquifer or groundwater, and might be effectively developed, which may be fundamental if the ground water level drops, by extendable the covering further down into the aquifer. The yield of existing hand dug wells may be enhanced by extending or presenting vertical tunnels or punctured funnels.

Burdens to hand-dug wells are various. It might be unfeasible to hand dive wells in ranges where hard shake is available, and they could be lengthy to delve and line even in great territories. Since they adventure shallow aquifers, the well may be powerless to yield variances and conceivable sullying from surface water, including sewage. Hand dug well development for the most part obliges the utilization of an overall prepared development group, and the capital financing for gear, for example, solid ring molds, substantial lifting supplies, well shaft formwork, mechanized de-watering pumps, and fuel might be expansive for individuals in creating nations. Development of hand dug wells might be unsafe because of breakdown of the well bore, falling articles and suffocation, including from dewatering pump fumes vapor.

Woodingdean well, hand-dug between 1858 and 1862, is asserted to be the world's deepest hand-dug well at 1,285 feet (392 m).[4] The Big Well in Greensburg, Kansas is charged as the world's biggest hand-dug well, at 109 feet (33 m) profound and 32 feet (9.8 m) in measurement. In any case, the Well of Joseph in the Cairo Citadel at 280 feet (85 m) profound and the Pozzo di S. Patrizio (St. Patrick's Well) inherent 1527 in Orvieto, Italy, at 61 meters (200 ft) profound by 13 meters (43 ft) wide[5] are both bigger by volume.
