The trees around Madron’s Well, in Cornwall, Britain, are still festooned with pieces of cloth, or “Cloutie” — prayers for healing to the Goddess of the well.

About the Name
We chose the name Brideswell to honour Brigit, Celtic goddess of fire and wells — guardian of those access points on the land where we draw up ‘the waters of life’.
‘Bride’ is one of Brigit’s many names, indicating her link with the feminine/masculine mysteries, whereby the ‘bride’ (the goddess who may also manifest as the magical mare) is served by the ‘groom’, with all the inherent sexuality of such an alchemical union. In turn, the bride honours the husband, and together they serve the greater good. For more about the goddess Brigit, see Kathy Jones’ book, The Goddess in Glastonbury.
