St Govan's Well and Chapel (Sacred Well) by thesweetcheat There's an organic feel to the chapel, either it's grown out of the rock or the rock has grown around it, like a tree trunk around a horseshoe.

Beautifully dramatic photo of a little chapel hiding away from the 'raiders' of the sea or land?.. or a hermit's resident.. moss Posted by moss

yeh, the celtic version of christianity was definitely a lot about the elements and being amongst nature, don't you think. All that praying in the middle of rivers. Scooting on stones over the ocean. Talking with the birds and that. It's definitely somewhere that's been on my visiting list for a very long tmie. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon

Thanks all, it's certainly worth going to, whatever its ideological merits :) thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
