St Anthonys Well


St Anthonys Well, originally uploaded by Ben909.

The well is said to heal skin deseases and sore eyes. To do this it is necessary to visit the well nine times at sunrise during May and wash the skin. Most likely the well was a ritual site for a very long period of time. In the area around the spring prehistoric flint implements have been found, also Roman and Iron Age artifacts.
