In the early 7th Century, Melangell, the daughter of an Irish king, fled to a beautiful spot at the head of the Tanat Valley in Wales, where she lived a peaceful solitary life until the Prince of Powys went hunting, and a frightened hare took refuge under Melangellís cloak. The Princeís dogs were subdued and, deeply impressed, he gave her the valley to create a sanctuary. Ever since, Pennant Melangell has been a place of pilgrimage, and Melangell remains the patron saint of hares, rabbits, small animals, and the natural environment.
  Melangell now has her own blog! Please pay a visit.
