The holy well and the sweat house in the same field.


In the field next to St. Mary's Carmelite Priory there's a holy well and a sweat house.
The holy well it's a dried up pond into a circular stone enclosure with an opening in the south-southeast side. The interior of the enclosure is shaped to form a stone seat all around the pond. Across from the entrance, in a niche into the wall, there's an ecclesiastical figure carved in bas-relief, but it's very worn out.
The entrance in the enclosure almost faces the entrance of the sweathouse.
In the same field some calves were grazing their grass and weren't happy at all to have an intruder in their land. They were a bit intimidating, I had to make it quick!
