St Gwenfaen's Well on Rhoscolyn travel guide

St Gwenfaen's Well, Rhoscolyn is one of the best preserved of the well chambers in Anglesey, but the date of the stonework is unknown. There are many "holy" wells on the island, most with healing powers, but some were "cursing wells". The well at Rhoscolyn is said to cure mental disorders, and it was customary to throw white quartz pebbles into the water. It consists of a sunken antechamber with a stone paved floor and four seats across the corners. Beyond is an enclosed pool with seats at either side, and in front of that an open pool approached by three steps on each side. The water is held behind a vertical slab and spills over a notch into a narrow stone-lined channel and thence over the edge.
