Source ID: 2426

Schedule Class: Religious, Ritual and Funerary
Category: Holy Well
Traditional County: Caernarfonshire
The well is a stone basin, enclosed on three sides by a step. There are stone benches on the NE and SW sides of the enclosure; the enclosing wall is of stone, roughly dressed and coursed, with an added coping. Rectangular niches, two on the NE and one on the SW, occur in the walls above the benches; the entrance, with a modern gate, is in the centre of the NW side. The added coping and other details are of the 18th C. The original structure is probably contemporary with the rebuilding of the parish church, late in the 15th century.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval holy wells and water systems.
