St.Keyne was a fair lady of the 5th Century, who traveled to Cornwall
to perform many miracles. A favourite spot included the spring of clear
water based in the Looe Valley, which was believed to provide healing
water and blessed gifts. Upon her death, St.Keyne wished powerful magic
upon the well, and its water as she faded away on the mossy banks. Four
trees were planted, by St.Keyne, to celebrate the springs earthy magic.
They were the Oak, the Elm, the Willow and the Ash tree. Direct descendants
of those trees still provide a leafy umbrella to the well, during the
hot summer months.
'real' locations: Matt, and Shadow Tor Studios, became fascinated by the
ancient wells of Cornwall. Grabbing a digital camera, sound recording
hardware and camcorders, they recorded the sounds, sights and textures
of many sacred wells, including St.Keyne.
