Sacred Springs

by Christina Martin


What is so special about spring water? How are wells holy? What kinds of legends magically appear in these places? And why are so many waters known for "the healing of eyes"? This little book tells the story of sacred springs and holy wells in the British Isles through carefully selected examples, beautifully illustrated by the author. A useful gazetteer at the back of the book catalogues further rewarding sites to visit.
