Is this the holy well of St John

Holy Well / Spring in Cornwall – This well is described in Cheryl Straffon’s excellent book “Fentynyow Kernow – in search of Cornwall’s Holy Wells” She describes this one as being outside Padstow: “Just outside the town there were 2 wells on the coast. St John’s Well lay on the headland of Stepper Point 3.5 miles to the north of the town. It originally had a beacon chapel but all that now remains is a spring under a rock by the cliff.”
