Artist's Description

The most magical place I have ever been……..

Saint Nectan’s Glen is an area of woodland in Trethevy near Tintagel, north Cornwall (England) stretching along both banks of the Trevillet River. The glen’s most prominent feature is St Nectan’s Kieve, a spectacular sixty foot waterfall and Holy Well .

St Nectan’s Glen has been described as amongst the ten most important spiritual sites in the country. There never was a St Nectan, the name is a Christianised form of the Cornish water god – Nechtan. Hundreds of clouties, messages and small offerings crowd the minute ledges of the steep sides of the glen. It can only be reached on foot, but it is well worth the effort. The atmosphere is both magical and tranquill……..a special place to sit and reconnect.
