Holywell is located in North Wales high on the hillside with views out across the River Dee towards the Wirral Peninsula. Holywell takes its name from the well that is in fact a spring of fresh water. Legend has it that Gwenfrei was a 7th century girl who at a young age wanted to become a nun, an only child of wealthy parents she enjoyed an education by a monk called Bueno. The legend goes that one day she was sat at home and was attacked by Prince Caradog who had taken a fancy to her – she escaped but Caradog took off in pursuit and caught her on the hillside where he cut off her head. Bueno found the girl and replaced her head miraculously restoring her to life. She eventually became a nun and was named St Winifred. Legend states that where her head fell a spring of healing water gushed forth – and today visitors come to Holywell to marvel at the bubbling spring waters seeking a cure for their ills. Holywell today offers visitors and residents alike a pedestrianised shopping area along the High Street, St Winifred’s is located just down the hill from the High Street. Access along the North Wales coast by car is relatively easy as the A55 runs close to Holywell – access to Chester is also relatively easy being around 20 miles away.
