A small area with a significant history, the pipewell spells out what Liskeard is and what Liskeard was. The pipewell is tucked round the rear of some shops with no real signage to show you where it is. If you are visiting Liskeard stop and look for the PIPEWELL

Worth a few minutes of anyone's time to look out this curiosity. An apparently Victorian arched and iron agreed enclosure over a small not quite grotto or vault space with four or five pipes spewing gentle streams of water out into a drain at the front. Said to be the joining of four or five old springs providing a healthy... More
