J0585 : Cranfield Church, Lough Neagh

near to Staffordstown, Ireland

Cranfield Church, Lough Neagh
Cranfield Church, Lough Neagh
The ruins of Cranfield Church are on the north shore of Lough Neagh at Churchtown Point. It was built in the 13th century and nearby is a holy well, which provides spring water and amber coloured crystals. It was believed that if one of these stones was swallowed it would protect women during childbirth, men from drowning and homes from fire and burglary. In the last century emigrants to America believed that, if they swallowed a pebble, they would sail safely across the Atlantic Ocean.
