Old Well In Totnes

Totnes in south Devon is a centre of New Age, alternative culture, to rank with Glastonbury in nearby Somerset.

Totnes' alternative lifestyle credentials are linked to the foundation of Dartington College of Arts in 1961 (now merged with University College Falmouth) and the establishment of Transition Town Totnes in 2005, which aims to promote a more sustainable, locally sourced way of living in the face of dwindling oil reserves and the onset of global warming.

This old well pictured above and below is decked with candles and ribbons and has something of a Hindu or Buddhist temple feel.

Totnes is north of Kingsbridge on the A381.
