Natural springs were revered by Devon's Celtic and early Christian inhabitants as places of healing and spirituality. Local place names give clues to their locations and many in fact still exist, hidden among modern town developments or in remote and neglected rural spots. This book explores the history of sacred wells in the county and seeks out over 90 surviving examples, with location photographs and notes on how to find them.
