Secrets of the Hidden Source
  • Description
  • Related
This book takes the reader upon a fascinating journey deep into the Devon countryside to seek out some of the most mysterious and little known ancient sites in Devon. Wherever water springs from the ground our ancestors looked for a vital supply of fresh water. But to such springs were also attributed curative and supernatural powers that formed a vital part of their religion.

Many of our most ancient myths and legends are associated with such sites, and today there is a growing interest in the natural belief systems of the ancients. When Christianity came to Britain, so many of these springs became Holy Wells, often dedicated to local saints. Gradually their importance as a natural supply of pure water waned, as did the belief that their waters held specific, and often magical properties.

Overlooked and neglected, many such sites are now often almost forgotten.
