In Pagan lore, the Chalice Well is portrayed as the feminine aspect of the sacred deity, with the male aspect symbolised by the nearby Glastonbury Tor.
The Chalice Well is a popular destination for Witches and Pagan pilgrims in search of divine feminine power and inspiration.
It is a gateway to the spirit world, represented by the design of the Chalice Well cover. The two interlocking circles (known as the Vesica Piscis) is a design based on ancient and intuitive symbolism.
In the Chalice Well design, the two circles are divided by a sword thought to represent Excalibur--King Arthur’s legendary sword (believed to be buried nearby at the Glastonbury Abbey), and are surrounded by local foliage revered for its midwinter flowering.
