4/111 St Petrocks well and garden pond
- about 35m south west of the Manor


Wellhouse and garden pond. Late C19, built for and probably designed by Sabine
Baring-Gould. Granite ashlar wellhouse, garden pond with stone border. Small
rectangular wellhouse has a corbelled granite roof gabled at ends, and a chamfered
round-headed doorway below a simple round-headed niche with a stone cross in the
The interior has an additional small niche on the left hand wall. The external
niche originally contained a statue of St Petrock. Baring-Gould, who rebuilt Lew
House (now the Manor Hotel) in the late C19 may have been prompted to build the
wellhouse by the presence of the holy well in the grounds of Morwenstow Vicarage, the
home of the Reverend R.S. Hawker. Baring-Gould published a biography of Hawker in
1876. The rectangular fishpond is immediately in front of the wellhouse.
