St Patrick’s Well
Around 450AD St Patrick, patron saint of Ireland is supposed to have preached on the banks of Ullswater in Cumbria. The whole Patterdale area is named after him. In Glenridding a Holy Well dedicated to St Patrick can still be found roughly one mile outside of the village of Glenridding. As with many Holy Wells it has a reputation of curing sickness and it is where St Patrick is supposed to have baptized converts to Chritianity.
