St wites well

St wites well
St Wite's Well, near Morcombelake has been in existence since 1630, when a traveller refers to 'St White a Virgin Martyr, whose Well the Inhabitants will shewe you not farre off in the Side of an Hill, where she lived in Prayer and Contemplation'.

Interesting! 1630 and saints in England?
This was at the height of puritanism and the hardening of attitudes leading to the Civil War.
Of course there were still Catholics, mostly in hiding, but for local people to show a complete stranger this holy well linked to a saint, is rather strange, given the paranoia of the times!
A very nice shot anyway, Pat!
