Conserving Historic Wells as Community and Cultural Assets 2018-04-10 15:13:00
This project will work communities to record, conserve, and develop historic wells as community resources, for celebration, tourism, or other uses. These important historical sites are disappearing from the landscape through neglect, under use, and are becoming forgotten. Their traditions and folkore, such as stories of the Celtic Saints, are in turn becoming lost. This project will turn them back into centers of the community and celebrate them again. The links with the stories of the Celtic Saints that many of these sites contain, and the prominence of wells as historic sites, provides physical links to many similar sites across Ireland, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and Portugal. The project will provide communities and volunteers with the skills, knowledge, and support to research, conserve and manage these important sites.
