This was one of my favourite places to visit, and the photographs kinda speak for themselves. The Chalice Well Gardens span over 4 acres and even in February were very beautiful. A healing stream running from the Tor goes through here and the whole space is designed as a place for meditation, quiet reflection, prayer and healing. The energy here was powerful but very soothing and mellow, it would have been so very easy to spend a whole day here just lost in peace. There are focal points and shrines throughout the Gardens making for a beautiful, natural and highly spiritual experience. The photographs start at the bottom of the garden and work up, following the water source back to where it enters the gardens.
Dotted over the place were benches and little cubby holes, huts and swings with prayers and meditative phrases and inspirations within, each places off the main walkways and in view of the focal point of the part of the garden you are in.
This part of the stream is where you could sit and drink the healing waters. They were surprisingly warm, extremely clear and pure and you could really taste the high iron concentration (I think I could have really done with bottles of this stuff to drink during my last prtegnancy when I was diagnosed with Anaemia... it certainly would have beat the horrible iron tablets I had to take every day, and their side effects, lol).
We were also lucky enough to spot this little fellow as we wandered quietly round... well technically my man found him, but I did snap this picture :)
