Our Lady's Well

Our Lady's Well is situated on the old pilgrimage route to Lady's Island. Dedicated to the Blessed Virgin the well was part of the pilgrimage and a pattern was held here on the 15th August, the feast of the Assumption. The well is surrounded on three sides by white walls with a turnstile on the eastern side. Two stone steps take you down to the well. I was particularly fond of the short but quite charming walk down the old pilgrimage track, with it's two delightful stone stiles. A standing stone is located in the nearby graveyard.
