|Description ||There are now two paths to Sancreed Well, this is the end of the older path which approaches from the southeast. The shiny iron railings are part of the landscaping work that took place in the late 19th century when the well and chapel were 'rediscovered' by the vicar of Sancreed. I supposed the remoteness of this site meant that the railings weren't taken for the "War effort" as in so many other places in the U.K. |
Behind the ferns is a large rectangular moulded fragment of a doorway which has been reused as a footbridge over an overflow channel from the well. The holy well itself in down seven steps in a granite chamber, lost in shadow on the right of the photo. The May tree above is still well hung with clouties.
|This is a lovely shot, with a touch of the 'Rousseau's about it!|
