Liskeard Pipewell
Liskeard Pipewell
This is not really a well but a spring which has been built around and the water channelled through pipes. It is in a back lane in Liskeard town centre appropriately called 'Well Lane'. The well surrounds date mostly from the early 19th century, although records of this well go back to the 14th century. A notice next to the well tells us that the water is said to possess healing virtues and lucky effects in matrimony. Another notice warns sternly that the water is unfit to drink!
