“15th century mini chapel worth brief detour.”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

I have driven past the turning hundreds of times. About a minute outside Callington on the road to Saltash/Plymouth. Turn in left and follow the signs for about two minutes. A little confusing especially when you find yourself in the middle of an active farm yard. There is a small dedicated car park straight ahead. You can catch a glimpse of the top of the chapel over the hedge. Walk out and turn left and it's about ten metres down the lane. There's an informative sign by the gate and the little granite chapel which contains almost only a stone cistern in which people were dunked for spiritual and healing purposes. It's a quaint yet dignified very small scale building but I was pleased I took the trouble to go and look.

“It's 'Dupath' well, not Depth Well.”
Reviewed 11 February 2013

Check this place out on the English Heritage website. I tried to add it to this listing but the Tripadvisor software wouldn't let me, nor could I correct the name of the place. Not very member or traveller friendly. I suggest that if you live within easy distance or are passing through, you look this place up and factor it into a trip. Doesn't need much more that half an hour but it is worth that. Bit surprised that locals haven't contributed.

“Dupath Well, just worth the walk.”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

Not bad, just as well we read up on it before we came. Small simple but curious. Presume but can't be sure the history is true. Bit of walk from nearest parking. No complaints but the expedition left us feeling a bit middle aged. No real excitement or serious/intriguing history or much social context. You get the impression the locals may not think much of or bother with it. No one has bothered to correct the spelling of the listing heading. I would have got a pic for them but didnt take my camera.

“Dupath Well”
Reviewed 8 October 2011

Either a listing mistake or someone's predictive text has got this header name wrong. But there is a lot of correct coverage via English Heritage and Google, including pictures. This is a curious and fascinating site worth a little detour and research. It's claimed to have some medicinal and curative properties but it's the building and folklore that make it worth taking a look.
