I never saw water falling so gracefully" it is a must see! You'll be amazed by its beauty as the waters crash through the natural rock formations. Water plunges down a vertical cliff and flows through a circular hole before shooting down into plunge pools below a footbridge and this site was listed recently in The Times' Wild Swimming guide.

According to legend, Melangell was given the Pennant valley as a place of sanctuary by Prince Brochwel Ysgithrog in the c7th after the hare he was hunting took refuge under her skirts. The valley became a sacred site and a shrine was built to St Melangell.
