ST CLETHER HOLY WELL CHAPEL
A place of peace
St Clether Holy Well Chapel is a place which welcomes everyone. Whichever religion you may follow, in our opinion, they are only different paths up the same mountain. And whichever God or Goddess you might worship, they are all one in the end.
Those who do not follow a religious or spiritual path also find a special place in their hearts here, whether enjoying a walk with the family, an interest in historic buildings or simply a little peace and quiet in today's hectic world.
Take a moment to sit on our lovely bench, kindly donated by Alan and Rene, inscribed with the words, Peace is the sound of heaven on earth, a most fitting sentiment for this place and its surroundings.
The area around the chapel is a wildlife sanctuary and, if you sit quietly, all manner of birds and animals might be seen. The birds are regularly fed - please feel free to bring some seed for them - it all helps especially during the cold winter months.
whoever you may be and wherever you are from
you are most welcome!
As part of St Clether's Thomas Hardy Weekend, the chapel was decorated for the re-enactment of the dedication of 1899, following the restoration by Rev Sabine Baring-Gould.
Local historian Barry West was the driving force behind the weekend and his grand daughter was christened at the chapel, as was a child on the dedication day all those years ago.
A visit from Dov Ahava and his lovely party visiting spiritual sites in the South West, all the way from Israel.
Visit by Bishop Tim of Truro, July 2016.
