We have some beautiful legends here in Wales, and one of them is about Melangel - a Celtic maiden from Ireland in AD 604. She came to live in the Tanat Valley, Powys in Wales. The essence of the legend is that Prince Brochwel Ysgithrog of Pengwern, Powys with his huntsmen were hunting hares one day and gave chase to one hare which retreated into the dense woods. When the Prince chased after the hare he found it safe and sheltered by Melangell who was meditating; the hare had found sanctuary at the hem of her dress.
