St Keyne's Well, near Looe, Cornwall, March 1924 Featured February Print

St Keyne's Well, near Looe, Cornwall, March 1924

A GWR publicity image of St Keyne's Well, near the coastal town of Looe in Cornwall. This photograph was taken in March 1924 some 12 years before the lane where the holy well is sited was widened leading to the well being rebuilt.
The well was first constructed circa 16th century and is tied to the legend of St Keyne; a princess who is said to have bathed in the waters of the spring. To this day recently married couples race each other to be the first to drink from the well; as Robert Southey's poem states "If the husband of this gifted well Should drink before his wife A happy man henceforth is he For he shall be master for life"
