Site Description NAR SH58SE3

It has been suggested that a spring immediately below the ramparts of Din Sylwy (NPRN 93842) and close to St Michael's church (NPRN 43631), was a holy well or sacred spring.
The spring is said to have been 'boxed in with stones', although little trace could subsequently be found of this.
There is no reason to suppose that this was a holy well and no definite evidence that it was not.
