Basically, it doesn't. It is a hole in the ground down to the level of the ground water. From there you must pump the water up to the surface and for use. The exception is an artesian well which rises on its own pressure. A hole is drilled and lined with casing then an electric pump is lowered down the tube.

Well, thats a deep subject.... There's water underground most everywhere in little cracks in the rocks and spaces in the dirt. When a hole is drilled into the ground, water pressure causes water to flow from shallower areas to deeper areas such as the bottom of the well hole. Water can be pumped out of the well hole as if flows into it.

A long ditch with a pail for water at the bottom of it.

That depends on the well. Artesian well water rises to the surface because of underground pressure. You can raise water in buckets (old, dug wells, mostly), with an Archimedes screw, or with a pump.

Water seeps into the bottom of a deep hole and you pump it up to the surface
