St Decuman, St Decuman's Church
St Decuman, St Decuman's Church
The Patron Saint of the church, St Decuman is supposed to
have arrived here from Wales on a pile of faggots with a cow.
This story is not unique. He is reputed to have lived an exemplary
life here until one day he was beheaded by a madman who could not
tolerate his saintliness. Decuman is supposed to have carried his
severed head to the well where he washed. In some stories he
replaced the head and was cured.
