9/96 Fice's Well and Cross
-

- II

Holy well and adjoining cross. Medieval. The well has rubble containing walls and
has been recently covered with rough granite slabs. The cross is likely originally
to have been taller but is now a short Greek cross of roughly hewn granite with an
inscribed Greek Cross on its front face.
Crossing quotes an old tradition that the cross was brought to the well from the
medieval chapel of St. Michael at the nearby Halstock which seems to have
disappeared as early as the C15 or C16.
