St Patrick's Chair & Well/Taken from Killymaddy filesAlso known as the Druids Chair and Well or St. Brigid’s Well, perched on the hillside in Altadavin Glen, this large ‘chair’ of sandstone is believed to have healing properties and local folklore says that if you sit and make a wish within days it will come true!  The chair is a huge 2m high stone block, shaped like a throne.

The well which is said to never run dry is another rock.  It has a depression in it and is filled with natural water.  According to folklore the water within such depressions or bullauns has healing powers and this well is supposed to be good at healing warts.
