Reached by taking an overgrown track leading westward onto Tredinney Common from the Iron Age settlement at Carn Euny near Brane, two miles west of Sancreed. As this path begins to widen, after about 100 yards, the well is immediately on the left.
It consists of a flight of steps leading down to a clear spring in a stone lined recess with a large granite capstone.
Another smaller well lined with four large granite slabs lies a few feet to the north west and carved stones from the chapel which once stood here may be seen in the surrounding undergrowth.
Services were held at the well chapel during the 18th century and the site has only been neglected since then. The stonework of the well is still in a good condition.
