|Description ||St Non's well is worth a visit.|
There is a signpost to the well and there is no trouble finding it.
It stands in the shadow of a leaning tree.
|Elizabeth Rees in "Celtic Saints in their landscapes"says that there is a celtic cross in the church below the well. Non's holy well feeds a bowseening pool (into which deranged people were tumbled for therapy). She also mentions another well at Pelynt (plou Nent - parish of Non) 4 miles west of Looe. These dedications may be to St.David's mother, or they maybe to a male version of St.Non(companion to David) who was buried in Brittany.|
| Sorry mishkin but I think you have this well confused with St Nun's or St Nonna's well at Altarnun - the above is the well at Pelynt.|
