About Brideswell

Madron's Well, Kernow

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.

Brideswell is an inde­pen­dent pub­lish­ing and con­sult­ing part­ner­ship between Leona Graham-Elen and Richard Elen. In addi­tion to the work of Brideswell Asso­ciates, pro­vid­ing “Cre­ative Tech­nol­ogy” con­sul­tancy work — in graph­ics, radio/audio/music pro­duc­tion, tech­nol­ogy writ­ing, teach­ing and related areas — we oper­ate a microp­ub­lish­ing com­pany, the Brideswell Press.

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.
