A muddy hole in the ground. Best avoided. Yuk. Actually no. One of Gowers oldest wells at Walterston. Most likely this well has been in existence for at least 500 years and more likely much longer than that. Gower has many springs and wells, many of them considered Holy. Celtic tradition and folklore tells us that many people believed these wells to have curative qualities. Long life , a child, relief from sickness, baptism. These old wells were an intrinsic element of life in older days. Even today this well is siphoned and water collected for agricultural use.
And once again, without your trusty OS 1:25 Explorer map, you probably would never have found it and just walked by this messy hole in the ground.
Maps are brilliant aren't they.
