|Description ||Cheryl Straffon (in Fentynyow Kernow) was delighted by Lady Well when she first encountered it, surmising it to be “clearly a early pagan site.” It does look the part. If someone were to tell me that a dragon slumbered under the hill it’s cut into I’d be inclined to believe them.
The fact that this old baptismal well has a dedication different to the local church, would tend support Straffon’s impression. It’s rather unassuming and does look delicate. It could easily become overgrown and lost. We should be grateful to the current custodian for keeping maintained a barbed wire fence designed to keep cattle out but allow pilgrims to pay their respects. The waters seep out from the structure rather than gather into any depth of pool.|
