A rewarding walk down a quaint path with lead you to this amazingly peaceful spot, still used today by pagans as you will see by the offerings tied to trees and items left at the alter.

We loved the clouty tree and the chapel at this well. Feels very spiritual there and very peaceful. So silent and ancient. Gorgeous.

The ancient well and chapel are in a beautiful location and is worth the walk to get to it. Please remember while you're here that this is a still very much active pagan site so please be respectful. In 2015 people were horrified to find...More

Might be difficult to negotiate the footpath from edge of village to start of track since it involves one or two stiles. Alternative is to follow (narrow) lane which eventually brings you to same spot.
