About Dupath Well House
1 mile East of Callington off A388 (OS Map 201; ref SX 374693)
Dupath Well is an almost complete granite Well House built over an ancient spring. It is said to have been built in 1510 by the Augustinian canons of St Germans Priory. It is the largest and most impressive Well House in Cornwall, constructed from grey granite blocks, with a roof made from long stones that run the length of the building, overlapping each another.
The building was used as a baptistery (where people could be baptised) and oratory (a quiet place where people could pray).
