The Fairy Well

Sacred Well


This is a wishing-well of some note in the
district; people even now go there to drop in
crooked pins, and wish. It is only a square hole
in the ground high up on the cliffs, at the base of
an overhanging rock, situated at the end of a nut
grove; a stream runs along the side, and a little of
it flows into the well by a gutter.

From "Ancient and Holy Wells of Cornwall" - M&L Quiller-Couch (1894).
