Sancreed Holy Well

Sacred Well


ΒΌ mile west of Sancreed church, through the farmyard opposite the church and follow a path which swings north to a small

An enchanted site with a very impressive well, reached down a flight of steps. There is room to stand upright underground, next to the water.

Adjacent to the well are the remains of a chapel; the walls are about 4 feet high and several carved stones are lying around. A modern cross stands nearby.

The site is very atmospheric and has an air of sanctity lacking at other more famous sites.
