|Description ||This pic shows the rear right of the inside of St Neot Holy Well, with the offerings, and the worn door with its lovely old catch. (I should say that we found this door fastened, and made sure it was securely shut before we left.)"
This is what the church guide book has to say:
"The Holy Well
The holy well is some three hundred yards from the church. It stands near the St Neot river in a level meadow backed by a steep bank planted with trees. One reaches it by turning in beside the Carlyon Garage. Mitchell, in his Parochial History of St Neots, 1833, states: "That there was an arch of stones over it, with a large oak springing from the arch, and with doors to the entrance, was remembered by some old inhabitants of the parish lately deceased .... Weakly children used within memory to be brought here."|
|This isn't at Poundstock, it is at St Neot between Bodmin and Liskeard!|
