|Description ||St Dwynwen's Well, Anglesey|
This is accepted as the most likely candidate for St Dwynwen's Well, also often referred to as Ffynnon Fair

| Hmm, not sure about this one, wellhopper. Could St Dwynwen's well have been re-dedicated to St Mary as in Ffynnon Fair ?|
| I have been told in the past that Ffynnon Fair (St Mary's Well) was often used as a generic name for a Holy Well in general, so quite possibly the two names were used interchangeably. This well appears on maps today as Ffynnon Dafaden - the wart well, from its claimed efficacy in curing warts|
