  • Absolutely worth seeking out and the short trek to get there. It is a truly magical place and even the walk there is quite enchanting. The only down points are it can be quite muddy and it is very popular with neopagans who have littered the site with "offerings"!
  • Ancient well a short walk down a narrow trail and past a spring, 1 family actually missed out on the well as they believed there was nothing past the spring that we was all at,me and my family took a 5 minute walk down and alas we came upon the well,a nice peaceful secluded area to rest and appreciate this old place
  • Amazing hidden spot! So beautiful and peaceful. And to research the history after visiting was very interesting!!
  • Wander down the muddy track , where upon you will come across a tree covered in ribbons and the like , where people have left their offerings. .... Keep on down the track and you will soon stumble across the ruins of the chapel that lays here beneath a old Yew tree... A real gem of a place, I will go back maybe with my own piece of ribbon......
  • Brilliant place. Check out the church also
