Standing Stone / Menhir


In the cliffs at the west end of Lleyn is a wishing-well called Ffynnon Fair, or St. Mary's Well; where, to obtain your wish, you have to descend the steps to the well and walk up again to the top with your mouth full of the water. Viewing the position of the well from the sea, I should be disposed to think that the realisation of one's wish at that price could not be regarded as altogether cheap.
This spring is in the cliff just beneath the stone, it would seem.
From an article on 'Sacred Wells in Wales' by John Rhys, in The transactions of the Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion for 1892/3.
