3 Physical description of well and its surroundings

According to Amanda’s Clarke, the well is tucked into the cliff face with a small slab above it. The well is very overgrown, and there are stone slabs lying to the right of the well. The largest stone bares many inscriptions including the date 1753, only just discernible with an M just below it. A cross is inscribed below with the letters IHS. IHS is also known as the Holy Name of Jesus in the Catholic church. Another cross is carved below these letters. Tucked into the base of this stone is a smaller slab, also cross marked.

6 Offerings

? No offerings were left at this well, but the carved stones are referred to as the Altar Stones and mark the site of the Mass Rock.
