Sacred Sites: St Nectan's Glen and Waterfall Revisited


When the sun is shining, spring flowers are blooming and the days are finally warm enough to go outdoors without a coat, I start to think about all the places I want to see - and St Nectan's Glen in Cornwall is one of them.

Denise Turner, who sent me pictures of St Nectan's Glen a couple of years ago, emailed me to say she had recently revisited the sacred site.

She said: "I while ago you featured a picture of St Nectan's Glen near Tintangel/Boscastle in Cornwall. I visited again last week and wanted to let you know that the new(ish) owners have created a new walkway around the magical waterfall, where you can see another 'secret' waterfall and there are more quite spots for quiet meditation."

She added: "As witches they are very pagan friendly and we had the best scones that we've ever had in our lives, because the witch who makes them (sorry forgot her name) makes them with love."

Denise said it is a highly recommended visit for anyone headed down to Cornwall and is close to The Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle - gifted at Samhain 2013 to Simon Costin, director of the Museum of British Folklore, with new displays, objects and management.

She also mentioned that anyone visiting Cornwall can go to Tintagel castle, where people can see the new controversial new carving of Merlin on the cliff by Merlin's cave: http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/about-us/search-news/merlin-carving-tintagel
