The water of the holy well.


At the end of the lane that leads to the St. Peacaun's church there's a well dedicated to the same saint. In the same field, 50 metres northeast, is a small stone enclosure. These remains are just 40 centimetres tall and have a diameter of 2.50 metres. In the centre of it there's a bullaun stone with two hollows.
This enclosure could have been the dwelling of St. Peacaun or Beakan, and it's marked as St. Peacaun's cell.
