Dupath Well, Cornwall

Historical Description

Dupath Well, a spring near Callington, in Cornwall. A traditionary story makes it the scene of a doubly-fatal duel between two Saxon nobles on account of rivalry for the affections of a lady, and that story has been rendered in verse by the Rev R. S. Hawker. The spring was also a resort of pilgrims in the Eomish times, and had a curious small granite chapel, which still stands, and is an object of interest to antiquaries.
