St Crannogs Church, Llangrannog
The Celtic saint Caranog was also known as Carantus, Cranog and Carantacus.
His father was Corun, the son of the great Ceredig, from whom we have the name for the county of CEREDIGION.
Corun ruled over South Wales, which then incorporated parts of South West England.
He was anxious that Caranog succeeded him to the throne, but Caranog refused and became a missioner.
These early Saints did most of their travelling by sea, following the coast and never went far inland.
It is known that Caranog flourished in these parts somewhere from 480 A.D. 540 A.D. - his influence covers a wide area because there are churches dedicated to his name in several areas.
