Morwenstow holy wells

St ohn's well, Morwenstow

Morwenstow had two holy wells, dedicated to the two patron saints of its church.

Unfortunately St Morwenna's well in the cliff face is now inaccessible and faces destruction from the constant erosion of the sea cliffs.

St John's well is not far from the church but is locked up and disused.
