It actually has 2 of those!
Facing the direction of the camera, the other one goes from front to back!

That's one thing this place has no shortage of: WATER (and character ...
). I couldn't run my well dry if I tried. Could probably supply the whole town! During heavy rains, the water table is just 4 feet below the surface (my well is 120' down so it's nice & clean). Basement has a constant flowing river through it when that happens. Usually not as deep as that pic - that one was taken after a major deluge caused a stone wall to collapse & block my drain pipe outside. Right now it's relatively dry down there - the concrete is completely dry & the sump has only about 6" of water in it.
