6/123 (13/5) Holy well to south of the Church of
- St Michael
Holy well house. Possibly medieval origins. Granite and stone rubble. Built into a
bank, with a small partly roofed well house and lower walls surrounding a larger
circular basin in front.
The low stone rubble walls to the front (north) of the well house may be the remains
of a larger building. The well house, constructed of granite ashlar has the remains
of a stone corbelled roof and a square well opening.
The well is dry and was overgrown at time of inspection (1986). Quiller Couch in
Ancient and Holy Wells of Cornwall suggests that the well was part of a more
important building. Traditionally the well house is associated with the ruins of an
