Photos of Museum Wishing Well at night
A couple of years ago, we put a wishing well in front of the Museum. There were many reasons for this: to raise money for Cornwall Air Ambulance, to bring back something from the Museum’s history (there used to be a wishing well at the Museum when it was on the Isle of Man), to help us with our drainage (it took care of a damp bit of garden and drains off excess water as it runs down the cliff) and to demonstrate and integrate the importance Cornish connection of magic with wells and water.
The well looks great outside the Museum and has a charm on a sign (carved by Steve Patterson) next to it which people can say as they drop their coins in. t has raised a lot of money for charity and has charmed many visitors too.
A good friend of the Museum, Paul Ferbrache, took some photos of the well at night-time. He has kindly shared them with us. Here they are – thanks Paul – it looks amazing!
