Valle Crucis Abbey, Wales

Not far from Corwen is Valle Crucis Abbey, the abbey has many stories attached to it.  It is associated with the holy grail which is believed by some to have been brought there.  Ghostly faces, some in golden helmets have been seen there.  Many people say they have heard singing and chanting in latin.  In the nineteenth century, two preachers were walking past the abbey at first light when they heard a male voice singing a latin religious song.  They stopped to listen and did not think that it was anything supernatural at first.  It was only when the singing had stopped that they went down to the ruins to introduce themselves and found that there was nobody there.
