This small chapel/well is off the main road and part of the English heritage sites around this part of Cornwall and if added to other similar sites in the area is worth putting on the itinerary. Once you follow the sign off the main road locating the site becomes difficult, but as you drive down the narrow road Dupath farm... More

The chapel houses a natural spring whose waters we're reputed to cure whooping cough, and may also have been used for baptisms. The structure of the tiny chapel dates from the early 16thC, and is in wonderful condition, fabricated from massive dressed Cornish granite blocks. Despite being signposted, it's not easy to find, as it's in the grounds of a... More

If you are passing this may be worth a visit. Other than the small well building there is nothing else to see. Need to park in a nearby farm and walk down a lane.

Interesting little historical feature and worth coming down the lane to take a brief look but when we last looked our first reaction was that the granite building could do with a brief but careful clean to remove the accumulated surface markings and growths such as the lichens.

It was interesting, but there is not a lot to do other than look at the well. Not too easily accessible either.

Fascinating historical building, worth seeing. Well signposted with a brown tourist sign. Situated in a farmyard- but the landowners are not hostile !

Surprisingly little know old building a very short distance from the main road. Easy parking yards from the old granite chapel or mini bathing place. The English Heritage website if you put Dupath Well into your search engine tells you all. Doesn't take long to visit and it's free.

I have driven past the turning hundreds of times. About a minute outside Callington on the road to Saltash/Plymouth. Turn in left and follow the signs for about two minutes. A little confusing especially when you find yourself in the middle of an active farm yard. There is a small dedicated car park straight ahead. You can catch a glimpse... More

Check this place out on the English Heritage website. I tried to add it to this listing but the Tripadvisor software wouldn't let me, nor could I correct the name of the place. Not very member or traveller friendly. I suggest that if you live within easy distance or are passing through, you look this place up and factor it... More

Not bad, just as well we read up on it before we came. Small simple but curious. Presume but can't be sure the history is true. Bit of walk from nearest parking. No complaints but the expedition left us feeling a bit middle aged. No real excitement or serious/intriguing history or much social context. You get the impression the locals... More
