|Description ||St John's Well at Tavistock (SX478739) is tucked into the hill in a public park area on the east bank of the River Tavy. A footpath runs parallel to the river bank on this side of the river, and a fairly slippery (it had been raining) flagstone path leads off at right-angles across the grass towards the little granite-arched well, and its capstone with 'St John's Well' carved on it.On the opposite side of the river, some walls still stand, bordering the footpath, which are from the ruins of the Abbey, destroyed in the Reformation.
I initially had some trouble finding it, but it may be accessed from either of two bridges: the large main traffic bridge which crosses the river from the shopping area, Town Hall and Market, going east, then turning to your right (south), down a path into the park (that's how I found it). You can then, if you wish, keep going, visit the well, then cross a footbridge a little further on, which takes you back into the large public car park south of the main shopping area.|
