Quiller Couch in his Ancient and Holy Wells of Cornwall recorded the well prior to restoration; "This rude well stands on a bleak high down in the lowlands of St. Minver where water could hardly be expected.. .it is after half buried with drifting sea sand... The building is square in form with a highly pitched but truncated roof of masonry. A niche of rude shape is in the further end of the Well, it may be to hold a drinking vessel, crucifix or effigy of a Saint". Meyrick, J. A pilgrims guide to the holy wells of Cornwall, 1982
