3 Physical description of well and its surroundings

The stone-lined well is big enough for immersion and has a small changing house beside it that is now used as a shrine. St. Ite's grave is said to be nearby. A decorated mass rock stands near the well with carved images of Saints Ite, Brendan and Erc. These images have been sadly ruined by visitors making the sign of the cross over them with stones just since the year 2000.
