4/242 Holy well of Saint Mylor at approx
50m north of Church of Saint Mylor


Holy well. Medieval origins, but present structure is probably C19. Shale rubble walling enclosing on 3 sides a natural spring built into a bank at the rear, square doorway to front (east) and large slate slab over. Some medieval fragments of dressed stone lie near the doorway.
Important historically, for the existance of a spring of good water, may have
determined the choice of site for the church and a settlement around it.
