The Chalice Well at Glastonbury:


One of my favourite places. You must visit it sometime.

A place I've visited several times...worth the entrance fee....for this well alone...but the gardens are sooooo peaceful.

Also..I think it was picked up on.....but I was inferring that springs /wells/streams etc were considered sacred because they cleansed(and not just external effluence as I suggested)...but drinking fresh well water, not just chalybeate, can have a purgative effect thus cleansing internally...and be seen as curative and thus sacred.
