|Crazywell Pool or Crazy Well Pool is a large
pond situated below Cramber Tor near the path from Norsworthy Bridge (far
end of Burrator reservoir) to Nun's Cross. Nearby, about 100 yards to the
east, lies Crazywell Cross, one of a number of crosses that marks the route
of the route of the Monks’ Path. This is the ancient name given to
the track that links the Buckfast Abbey with those at Tavistock and Buckland.
The pool is thought to be the result of excavations by tin miners which
was either used by them as a reservoir or were mine workings that subsequently
flooded. The pool maintains a fairly constant level being fed by an underground
spring and drained by subterranean drainage at its lower end. It has a surface
area of about 0.86 acres and is about 110 yards long.
