Also known as the Druids Chair and Well or St. Brigid’s Well, this large 2m sandstone ‘chair’, shaped like a throne is believed to have healing properties and local folklore says that if you sit and make a wish within days it will come true!

The well which is said to never run dry is another rock. It has a depression in it filled with natural water. According to folklore the water in such depressions or bullauns has healing powers.
