|Description ||St Nectan's Glen has been described as amongst the ten most important spiritual sites in the country. (SX080885)
There never was a St Nectan, the name is a Christianised form of the Cornish water god - Nechtan. The way down to the water is steep and slippery, but so beautiful. Hundreds of clouties, messages and small offerings crowd the minute ledges of the steep sides of the glen. It can only be reached on foot, but it is well worth the effort.
The well house is at the entrance to the glen and is in a poor state.
Located deep in a hidden valley near Tintagel and not far from Rocky Glen.
