|Description ||This well appeared to be much visited with signs giving directions to it and clouties hung on the wellhouse and in nearby trees. Despite extensive searching, I have been unable to find any information about either the saint or the well except that St Bryvyth, also known as Brevita, is a lesser Celtic saint and the patron saint of Lanlivery. The well lies very close to the Saintís Way which runs from Fowey to Padstow and follows the route taken by 6th century Celtic missionary monks from Brittany on their way to Wales.|
To visit the well, park in Lanlivery and follow the footpath to Luxulyan that runs beside the crown Inn (Iím pretty sure that it is also signed as The Saintís Way). The well is a short distance down the track and was very well signposted.
