|Description ||The wellhouse is thought to date from the mid 16th century and is located near the main door of St Petrocís Church in Bodmin. It is thought that the actual spring is located somewhere underneath the church as records from the early 16th century refer to the construction of aqueducts to carry water through the church to a site outside the churchyard.
St Guron was a hermit who established his cell on the site of the present church (St Petrocís). St Guron is generally credited with being the founder of Bodmin. When St Petroc arrived from Padstow, St Guron gave up his hermitage, which was converted to a priory and moved a short distance south to Gorran.|
