Sancreed Holy Well

Sacred Well


Found this place by accident after a visit to Carn Euny in September 2001. We went on a bit of a scenic route home, and spotted the "Holy Well" sign - thought it was "Holy Well Farm" or something! Looks like a garden gate to me... Still - we took the chance, and I am so glad we did! This is the most peaceful place I have ever been to. Every time I visit this place (about 5 times now), there is never anyone else around! It's a place of contemplation and reflection... Sitting on the steps inside the well, staring into the water, it's easy to lose track of time... I'm sure I read here that radiation levels are about 200% above normal, which could account for the luminous moss and the feeling of well being! I had a little pray, tied me cloutie, and went away a happy man. Again. goffik Posted by goffik
