Some 2 miles SE. of Colwyn Bay, Llanelian is noteworthy for its church and its well. The former dates from the fifteenth century, and has a finely carved rood-loft. Note also in the churchyard the tomb with the Scottish Lion and the English Leopard on its quarterings; it is said to mark the grave of a descendant of the “Fair Maid of Kent,” wife of the Black Prince. Ffynnon Elian, the “cursing Well,” has been destroyed, but a tree marks the site. A pebble thrown into the water, with the initials of the person to be cursed inscribed upon it, brought doom to the victim. The well was regarded with terror and awe throughout Wales.
