|Description ||This is the view south from the narrow ledge where Saint Morwenna’s Well House sits. It certainly scores less than 1 for access. |
|Morwenna' story; She was carrying a stone from the cliff to build her church, when she laid the stone down so that she could rest. A spring gushed forth from the spot, so they built the church there.
A 6th century saint, the same story is told for her at Marhamchurch , Cornwall as well, and she is also to be found at Mynwen Holy well at Barry, Glams.
