I’m intrigued by historians, Alan Wilson’s and Baram Blackett’s contention that Empress Helen brought ‘the true cross’ to Dyfed and concealed it in a cave here. Y Ddraig Ffraed flows through this cave.
As well, Alan Wilson relates whispered stories he heard from the locals, when he was a kid living for a time with his uncle on a farm near Dinas Cross. In hushed and reverent close company they told how the old folk knew, and passed down through the generations, an even greater secret…that Jesus was buried nearby. This site is not on the dragon.

Several times I’ve mentioned how elements of the Mabinogion have cropped up while on this journey with Ffraed, and how there are noteworthy connections concerning Pembrokeshire and Oxford – a place where I have spent the greater part of my life. There is a strong Welsh connection with two colleges, Pembroke and Jesus Colleges. I’ve previously too talked about Dragons and their affinity with Oxford, in so many ways.The centre at Oxford is a Dragon location in the Mabinogion. We have also discovered that Y Ddraig Ffraed leaves the coast of the Isles at St. Bride’s.
