Merlin’s Well near Tintagel on the North Cornwall coast. Historians believe King Arthur may have been born in Tintagel which adds to its mystique. Some believe the Well to be a sacred place and it has become somewhat customary to leave behind a small stack of flat stones collected from the river for the fairies.
