One of a group of three wells supplying water to the village. In 1883 Dr William Salmon, concerned for the public health of the area, donated community wells to serve the villages of Penllyn and Graig Penllyn; but the springs were probably used, before being enclosed, back to medieval times. Restored and landscaped in 2000 as part of a Community Millenium project.
Rectangular well covered by stone housing with curved corners at front. Above doorway, stone plaque with inscription, 'Dwr Rhudd Yr Hollalluog Dduw'.
Slabbed roof and stone sides.
Included for its special interest as part of a possibly unique group of three wells serving villages of Penllyn and Graig Penllyn.
