Notes

NMRS: held to have 'great healing powers' (1871), covered with a dry-stone chamber, silted but still containing water (1973). According to a local web-site (www.stdevenicks.org.uk) the well had an annual pilgrimage on 13th November, i.e. at about the time of St Devenick's Fair, second Tuesday of November.
