Descrizione

Owen Glyndwr was fourth in descent from this nobleman.<br><br>I returned from hence, by the same road; crossed the Dee at Llangollen; and, after a ride of about a mile, deviated, in a little fertile vale, to the abby of<br><br>Llan-Egwest, Glyn-Egwest Monachlog, or de Valle Crucis, solemnly seated at the foot of the mountains, on a small meadowy flat, watered by a pretty stream, and shaded with hanging woods. The valley in which the abby stood was called, long prior to the foundation of the religious house, Pant y Groes, or the Bottom of the Cross, doubtlessly from the antient column erected in memory of Eliseg. This was a house of Cistertians, founded in the year 1200, by Madoc ap Gryffydd Maelor, lord of Bromfield, and grandson by the mother's side to Owen Gwynedd prince of Wales.
