Listing Text

BIGBURY ST ANN'S CHAPEL
ST 64 NE
5/65
St Ann's Well, c.70 m
south of Holwell Farm-
house

- II

Holy well. Established in middle ages, but surviving structure is later C19.
Rubble, some yellow brick to steps. Remains of a small walled enclosure, some
brick steps down to water level on west end; the whole considerably overgrown
(Oct 1988) and outlines difficult to establish. A characteristic survival
always referred to as the Holy Well, and giving the name to the adjacent Holwell
Farmhouse (q.v.); it is still a spring source of fresh water.
